His family moved to Guilford, Maine, summer of 1938 when he was five years old. He graduated from PCHS, class of 1951. He enlisted in the U.S. Air Force on Aug. 24, 1951, and was released from active duty on Aug. 23, 1955 and received his honorable discharge four years later following his eight-year obligation. He met his true love in September 1956 at his brother's wedding at which he was the best man and Hilda Pooler, of Moscow, was the maid of honor. They were married July 4, 1957. He always said with a chuckle "I lost my independence on Independence Day".
Upon release from the Air Force he returned to Guilford and was employed at Guilford Industries until he moved his family to Fitzwilliam, N.H., during the summer of 1963. In the fall of 1964, they moved to Stillwater, Maine, and he went to work at the University of Maine, computer center, retiring 28 and half years later, on June 30, 1993.
