Salutatorian of the 1933 Rutland (Illinois) High School class. He took a 2 year teacher's course at Illinois State University, but could not find a teaching job .

The plane never returned from a mission on August 16, 1944 after making many successful runs, even earning a presidential citation. He was greatly missed by his father, five brothers and five sisters. His memory is kept alive by many nieces and nephews.
