Shortly after his Brockport graduation, he was hired as Carthage correspondent for the Watertown Daily Times. After six months, he was moved to the Watertown office to develop a career which would span about 42 years. Most of his career was dedicated to crime reporting, but he also had brief terms as a court reporter and part of a two-person Fort Drum reporting team after the 10th Mountain Division became based at the local post.

He married Lucille Ann Collier on 9/15/1972. in an ecumenical ceremony performed at the Wesleyan Methodist Church in Pitcairn.
