He served as a deck officer, including Master in the American Merchant Marine. He was also a Commissioned Officer in the United States Naval Reserve. Following a stint with Waterman Steamship Company, Uwe came ashore in 1972 for a 23-year tenure in various capacities with the former Associated Container Transportation (ACT) Pace/Blue Star Line in Port Elizabeth and then to Philadelphia, where he settled.
