In brief: Thats a loaded quest
It depends on so many issues.
People with spinal stenosis usually lead a productive life and can continue working. But... How bad is the stenosis? What kind of symptoms does he have? What type of work is he doing? What does his imaging show? All of these questions will be important in determine his work capacity. This should not be a deal breaker for you unless you are looking for one.
