In 1984 Doc and Raejean relocated to the Dallas, TX, area and built more successful practices and because of this, were able to retire early.

Throughout his life, Doc was able to enjoy his love of traveling, hunting, deep-sea fishing, three-wheeling in the desert, playing cards and his summer home in his beloved Gloucester, MA.
