He later returned in 1947 and served until 1952 in the Naval Reserve. After the Korean War, he returned to high school and went on to Baylor University and graduated as a teacher. He taught approximately 30 years with Weslaco High School. After retirement, he continued to substitute teach at Angleton High School and work part time at Kroger. He was a man who could fix anything and was always working multiple jobs. He was also a member of the VFW, Toastmasters, Texas State Teachers Association among other groups.
