That year, he joined General Electric Co. in Pittsfield as a development engineer. In 1959, he became a U.S. citizen and moved to Endicott, N.Y., where he worked for IBM developing and patenting the computer punch card.

In 1964, he became vice president in charge of production for Herald Printery in Louisville, Ky., and served on the committee that developed micro-numerals on checks.

In 1970, when Herald Printery was acquired by American Bank Stationery he joined the ABS plant on Pulaski Highway in Rosedale and helped establish ABS's research and development department. He retired in 1988.

He was a member of several organizations in the engineering and printing industry from which he received numerous awards and honors.
