I'm assuming he's having trouble transitioning from being the head of a mechanical engineering department to retiree. He's a true INTJ and occasionally goes into the office to help out. He typically comes home fuming about the stupidities that the company/department/marketing/you-name-it are committing.

Does anyone have any tips on how to deal with this situation?

He needs a hobby in a hurry or you're going to be run out of the house in a month. I doubt the company is going to put up with his presence once they've thanked him for his years of service, and you'll have him bouncing around like a caged animal 24/7. Is there anything he's ever expressed an interest in that he didn't have time to pursue because of work?
