He married Flora Maxine Coplin in Fort Worth on September 4, 1953 and later they moved to Silver Spring, MD; Philadelphia; and finally San Rafael, California in 1969. He attended Texas A&M for his bachelors degree and earned his masters degree in Engineering from the University of Oklahoma. He was a nuclear engineer for Bechtel until he retired.
