Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 20, 1918
Westerville
Franklin County
Ohio, USA
Death: Dec. 3, 1997
Upper Arlington (Franklin County)
Franklin County
Ohio, USA

Born and raised in Westerville, Ohio. Attended Westerville High School where he excelled in football, baseball, track and basketball. Was valedictorian and president of his junior and senior classes. Graduated from Otterbein College where he enjoyed the same popularity and success.

Worked for Battelle Memorial Institute for over 40 years as a division head and later project manager, his health requiring him to retire early. A highlight of his work with Battelle was his trip to Korea for consulting purposes. Much of his work was classified, working on projects with the CIA and Naval Intelligence, he could never discuss his work as others could. He also worked on projects with the EPA in later years.

He enjoyed working with his hands, remodeling the home, doing his own repairs and creating wonderful living spaces. An avid golfer, he created and managed the Battelle Golf Tournament.

In early years he enjoyed fishing and camping, as a result of Parkinson's Disease he lost the balance and arm strength needed to fully enjoy his many hobbies and interests. He loved reading, movies and music, the garden, yard and birdwatching.
