He had worked at both the local hospitals, Mercy and the University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics, but his most rewarding job was as a baker at the Sheraton Hotel in Iowa City, after attending baking school, he became a very good baker! He was baptized as an adult at River Community Church, and was a faithful member. He was a member of the Eagles Lodge in Iowa City, always finding reasons to be out driving in his car, but most of all, he loved his son Joey. And the two of them were tight as it gets.

His family includes his son, Joseph "Joey" McNabb of Iowa City; sisters, Barbara (Dallis) Meier of Iowa City; Betty Lee Welsh-Fisher of Irvine, CA and Judith (Mark) Standard of Hanover, NM; numerous nieces, nephews and other family members. He was preceded in death by his parents, and an infant son, Daniel.
