After having 2 other daughters, Deborah (Lairson) Croft and April (Lairson) Bennett, w/ his second love, moved to Melbourne, Fl., where he worked 30 yrs. in construction, then as an Amusement Park Manager for 18 yrs. at Tybee Is., Ga. before moving in w/ his youngest daughter and her family in Rockledge, Fl., remaining there 14 yrs. until his death.
