His civilian career included designing telemetry equipment for NASA, marine electronics, and automated manufacturing of medical devices. He was a member of the Sarasota Sailing Squadron and in 1964, working in his garage, finished a 22 foot wooden sloop. After his marriage to Mary Pamela Dougherty, the family grew and in 1980 relocated to Jasper, where Rogers Electric and Plumbing operated for many years. Later in life, he earned his pilot’s license, built ultra-light aircraft, and was active in the Pickens County flying community. He also gave great enjoyment with his nightly piano playing.

He is survived by five children: David Theetge of Charleston, Janis Horn of Miami, Rachael Benson of Racine, WI, Mariah Cohen, and Christopher Dougherty, both of Sarasota; seven grandchildren, and many others within his extended family for whom he cared deeply.
