Otto went to work at the Petoskey Manufacturing Company and later retired from there as the Foreman of the Plating Plant.

On March 9, 1957, he married the former Audrey Hathaway and together, they enjoyed over 59 wonderful years. Of those years, many were spent in Zephyrhills, FL. where they were able to avoid all the snow in Northern Michigan.
