Born on a farm in Indiana which had been established by his grandfather in 1830, he attended a one room school, and graduated from Hanover College in Hanover, Indiana. He taught high school English, married his sweetheart from St Louis, entered the war effort and worked on building airplanes for Goodyear Aircraft which is how the family was sent to Arizona. They loved it there and after the war, he returned to education, first as teacher and principal at Avondale School, later moved to Phoenix and served in Osborn #1 district, moved to Scottsdale and was principal of Tonelea School until he retired. He and his wife were married for 63 years when he died.
He had a lifelong love of education and its ability to improve one's life both personally and financially. He had a strong work ethic which he inspired in his children and his students. With all of this, he had a wry sense of humor and loved play on words.
He was the dearest and most admired of fathers.
