He came to California in 1961 and moved to Modesto a year later. He first worked there as an attorney for Gallo Winery, then worked for three years with LaCoste, Keller and Strauss. He opened his own law office in 1967. He retired as managing partner of Strauss, Neibauer, Anderson and Ramirez in 1995. He spent the past two decades traveling the world with his beloved wife, Bonnie, spending time with his sons and their spouses, and enjoying his three grandsons.

He served three terms as president of Congregation Beth Shalom, was a member of the Stanislaus State University Foundation Board, a board member of the Fleur De Ville Homeowners Association, vice chairman of the Democratic Central Committee of Stanislaus County and a devoted bridge player of 50 years.
