The family was forced to sell out to the government, for the Military Base that is now Fort Gordon, and they moved to Augusta, Georgia. A financial downfall, they never recovered from, as the amount of money they received was not enough to purchase another farm.

He was a Mechanic & Truck Driver and built houses.

He married Katherine Virginia Brown. On March 12, 1944, he joined the Navy because "he didn't want to walk across Europe." At the time he had 4 daughters and was living on Green Street in Augusta.
