Mr. Nave moved with his family to a farm on Jamaica Point Road near Trappe, where he had been a farm owner and operator for most of his career.  He was a field test engineer for New Holland Machine Company where he tested farm equipment throughout the country.  He transferred grain for Perdue for many years.  He also worked for Union Trust Bank in Easton and Cambridge.


Julian enjoyed auction sales, flea markets and collecting clocks.  He also enjoyed traveling to Hawaii three times and to Alaska.  Having Sunday dinner with his family was always a special part of this week.
