He was orphaned at a young age, and he was sent along with his young brothers to the Washburn Orphan Asylum in Minneapolis. The brothers ran away from the orphanage, and hopped the rails to travel around the country. He worked at an ice cream factory, and he delivered milk in a horse drawn carriage. While delivering milk to the school, he met his wife who was a school teacher. They moved from Minnesota and settled in the Chicago area.
