He spent twenty-one years, where he proudly served in both the Korean and Vietnam wars, before retiring as a Tech Sargent. Afterwards he spent a lifetime devoted to the profession of Environmental Safety & Health Engineer, until he retired.

He enjoyed much of his life, as a sportsman, bass fishing and hunting with his son, and later in life he enjoyed going fishing with his good friend and neighbor, Dale Massee.
