I believe he lives in Romulus, MI. 48174. I think he had everything auctioned off. Here is the web site

Probably one of the greatest head developers ever. Built heads for Bob Glidden, work with Jack Rouse and anyone else that went fast. If you find out anything about him let us know. He is defiantly an American Icon. He should have some type of tribute.
