The marriage did not work out and after the divorce the band he traveled with ended up in Utah and there he met Esther Samuell. They were married in Elko Nev. in 1945. To this union 4 children were born, Mary Louise(Clint Dunn Dayton Idaho), David Lee (Cindy Fairbanks Alaska), Randy Allen, and Debra Jo(Larry Ward) of Oak Harbor Washington.
