Their daughter Emma is a civil engineer and lives in the Boston area. Emma’s wife, Autumn is also a civil engineer in the Boston area. Their son, Edward is a marine mechanic with Davis and Tripp in Dartmouth; their youngest, Ross, is a studpastor emily 2ent at UMass Dartmouth, plays on their tennis team and works for Golfer’s Warehouse in Braintree.
