He was the owner of The Music Shoppe in Morristown where he taught trumpet proudly for 30 years and changed the lives of many.

He loved to travel and thoroughly loved spending time with his three children, Dawn Harms, husband Kenneth Harms, Philip Giardino, wife Marla Giardino, and Diane Esposito. As well as his grandchildren Jessica and husband James Arnold, Cassandra Harms, Kenneth Harms, Joseph Esposito, Michael Esposito, Spencer Giardino, Tanner Giardino Gia Esposito, and great granddaughter Cyprienne Arnold.
