When he retired he decided to settle on Galveston Island, after Hurricane Ike, he relocated to Lake Jackson and quickly fell in love with the area. He met Carolyn through their love of cats, when a worker at their apartment complex found an abandoned kitten behind the dumpster and brought it to him to help. He and Carolyn proceeded to bottle feed that kitten and make sure the kitten lived. He had a special bond with that kitten until the day he passed. "Little Bit" would not leave his side throughout his illness.
