He migrated with his parents to Shamokin, PA as a toddler and then on to Steger, IL where his father William worked in a piano factory. He was living on his parents farm in the Town of Little Black in Taylor County, WI when he met Mary Pupp. They were married in St. Bernard Catholic Church in Abbotsford, WI on October 9, 1928 the year following his younger sister Agnes' marriage to Albert Pupp, Mary's older brother.
