After graduating high school, he enlisted in the Army Air Force and fought bravely in World War II. A sergeant, he was a radio operator in a B17 Bomber. After his honorable discharge, he went on to the University of Minnesota where he earned a Bachelor's degree in Business.

He spent his entire career working as an auditor for City Service Oil and Gas Company (Citgo). He started working for Citgo in St. Paul right out of college, then was eventually transferred to Wausau, Wisconsin, where his sons were born, and to South Bend, Indiana, when his Midwest territory was expanded. He then finished his career in Tulsa, where he retired. He and Lorraine were members of the Christ United Methodist Church and were also active in their retirement community. One of his favorite activities was golf and they enjoyed extensive travel, including Ireland, Hawaii, and several trips to Europe. He also volunteered for several organizations, among them: The University of Notre Dame, Tulsa International Airport, the Oklahoma Aquarium, the BOK Center, and the American Red Cross.
