After leaving school he had various jobs, most involving his occupational second love, driving. He drove everything from armored cars to armored tractor-trailers, regular tractor-trailers, and finally motor coaches (charter buses). During this time his mother went on to her eternal rest in 1987. His father has had many strokes but is now doing well. In 1997 he met Rhonda Sherrice Smith and her daughter Paige. He and Rhonda were married on Christmas Eve that same year. In the summer of 2000 he returned to his studies, this time at Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, Indiana.
