In high school, he played a year of football, then baseball, tennis and track. He also starred in two plays, was president of his senior class, played the drums in a dance band and was voted most likely to succeed. In 1957, he received has bachelor's degree from the University of Denver and an award for the highest grade average for a senior majoring in accounting. He was also invited to be in Phi Beta Kappa. He passed the CPA exam on the first try and was then drafted into the Army. Once he was discharged, he worked as a CPA for Arthur Anderson.

He married Susan Parkhill of Evanston, IL in 1961. Later, he went to work in mortgage banking; then leaving the banking industry, opened a travel agency. When he found that there was no software available to manage his agency, he started a software development company with his son, Randy, to provide accounting and management software for travel agencies. They sold their program, PC MAX, to System One (Continental Airlines) in 1988. In 1994, he and his son, Dave, started another software development company to provide a windows version of travel agency accounting. They sold GlobalWare to Apollo Travel Services (United Airlines) in 1997. With the help of his daughter, Debby, he continued to serve his clients until 5 months before he died.

He was a leader in the Anglican Catholic Church until 1995 when he and his wife entered the Catholic Church, soon to be followed by their four adult children, spouses and grandchildren.

He is survived by his wife of 51 years, Sue, and his four children, Randy, David, Debby Hathaway, and John, as well as 14 grandchildren.
