After graduating from Ironton High School in 1950 (where he was drum major), he attended Marshall College before serving his country in the US Navy during the Korean conflict (stateside). He graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Ohio University, Athens, Ohio, in 1957. His business career began at INCO - Huntington Alloys (now Special Metals) in February of 1957 where he worked until his retirement in 1993.

He was a regular gold medallist in the Senior Olympics, walked and ran on the beach daily, and was an active member in several local theater groups, including playing the lead in many plays and musicals.
