Bien worked for over 30 years for the Chrysler Corporation in Highland Park where he retired as an IT purchasing executive for the automotive giant. Bien was engaged in a dual career from the late 60s thru 70s as he helped manage the family restaurant business. He worked hard and really enjoyed playing racquetball to build relationships and relieve stress which motivated his comrades to stay healthy. Even after retirement in 1988, Bien continued to play racquetball up until the age of 84.

Another passion of Bien's was food, to include cooking, eating and dining out at his favorite eateries.

A devoted son, father, brother and uncle, he was also a coach, mentor and counselor to so many family, friends and colleagues.
