He lived a long and enjoyable life and passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family on March 6, 2007. He grew up in Pleasant Grove and graduated from Pleasant Grove High School. He was a radar operator during World War II, serving in New Guinea and the Philippine Islands. He married his eternal sweetheart, Naomi Fae Shepherd, on November 2, 1946. He was called back into military service during the Korean War and served as a radar operator/instructor in Olathe, Kansas. He spent his life as a builder and served as president of the Utah Valley Home Builders Association. Many schools, government buildings, and homes will stand as memorials to his talents and skills. He donated his services in building the Senior Citizen Center in Pleasant Grove as a gift to the city. He had a strong work ethic and taught his children the value of hard work in all aspects of their lives.

After he retired, he helped those same sons start their own construction business, Adcon, Inc. If he was not working, he was with his family stream fishing, boating, or camping. He loved the mountains and volunteered to inspect buildings for the US Forest Service in the Uintah and Fish Lake National Forests.
