As a young boy, he worked on his family’s farm and as a caddy at the local golf course. In high school he was active in FFA and 4H and graduated from El Cajon Valley High in 1960.

Upon retirement, he moved to Lewisville, TX in 2004 to be closer to family. He served as a deacon and elder at the Webb Chapel Church of Christ in Farmers Branch. He truly loved the Lord and people. He spent much of his time visiting and encouraging the sick or anyone who needed help in some way. He enjoyed watching local high school sports and was an avid fan of the Lewisville Fighting Farmers.
