Upon his return home he joined his father in his Dental Practice on Cockburn Street until his father’s passing. He later commenced a partnership with Dr. Anthony Davis at Star Dental Clinic where he was dedicated so much to his profession that in spite of his advancing illness, he worked up to the day he was admitted to Doctors Hospital for the final time.

Eneas Sr. He also chaired the Eneas Heritage Book Drive where over 800 books were donated by Omega Psi Phi to the College of the Bahamas library which were the result of gifting brothers throughout the USA. He was also a founding member and subsequently President of THE LUNCH BUNCH. He was a dedicated member and Elder of The Holy Qubtic Church Of The Black Messiah - Nassau, Bahamas Branch of which his son is the Pastor.
