Daddy was a business man, having learned at an early age the value of hard work and working for a living. He worked in the Candy business, started by his late father Ulric Mortimer Sr and spent his last days enjoying his time making sweets and hanging out with his grandson, Cayle, who had become his confidante while they mixed, pulled and cut specialty candies on a daily basis. He also started and operated his own business, selling bakery supplies to local bakeries.
