He married Kathryn Obray on April 20, 1945 in Walla Walla,Washington. Leaving Washington, they made their home in Ogden, Utah. They both enjoyed a happy and productive life together raising three children. Dad was a graduate of the L.D.S Seminary and was an Elder in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Dad joined the United States Army Air Force at the beginning of World War II where he earned the rank of Staff Sergeant. He subsequently transferred to Counter Intelligence Division achieving the rank of Captain. Dad retired from the internal Revenue District Office after 28 years.

Dad attended Logan City Schools and was an honorary graduate of Utah State College and a member of Phi Kappa Pi Honorary Graduate Society. He had a keen analytical mind and was proficient in most any goal he desired. He developed a lifetime love of learning.

Dad enjoyed the wonders and beauty of the outdoors, especially fishing. Many summer days were spent working at the Bear Lake family cabin. Dad enjoyed playing his organ and listening to semi-classic and nostalgic music. Dad was also a long time member of the Elks Club and the American Legion.
