After attending Newark High School he served in the US Navy for four years aboard the USS Coral Sea. He then joined the Army for three years where he was stationed in Bad Kreuznach, Germany and Camp Drum, NY.

He married the former Joann O. Blanchard on May 5, 1952 at St. Henry's Church, Natural Bridge with the Rev. Henry McFadden officiating.

After his honorable discharge in 1953, he was employed by D.L. Reed Trucking and Buckley Motor Express both in West Carthage. He later drove for Smith Transport and various other trucking companies.
