He married his wife, Laura Marie Miller, of 44 years on May 5, 1979.  They welcomed their first child, Christopher Michael, in Fort Wayne, IN.  In 1982, they moved from Indiana to Georgia so that he could pursue a career as a Construction Superintendent for Waffle House, building Waffle Houses throughout the South.  In 1988, they welcomed their second child, Mary Catherine.  After 10 years at Waffle House, he moved on to become a Maintenance Superintendent for Columbia Retail Management and was with them until he retired in 2021. 

He became a Grandfather in 2013 to Tanner Anglin and again in 2016 to Addie Anglin and he loved spending time with them. He was a good Husband, Father, and Grandfather and loved to tinker in his workshop he built from the ground up by himself.
