Dad retired from the military in 1957 after six years in the U.S. Army and 15 years in the Navy. Mom said Dad was somewhat at a loss as to do with the rest of his life. While he was in the Navy my mom had encourage him to complete his high school equivalency. Dad decided to continue his education at the Stockbridge School of Agriculture where he majored in floriculture. He graduated in 1960 and became the first person in his family to obtain a college degree. He eventually operated his own successful landscaping business. He was still actively working as a landscaper when he died in 1985 at the age of 69.
