He graduated from Gooding High School. He then wanted to play Battleship so he had to go to the extreme and use a real one. He joined the U.S. Navy and was on the USS Hamner for four years.

He then came back to his home for awhile to have two great daughters. Then he headed west to Eugene, Oregon where he lived till he retired and returned to Idaho to stay.

He enjoyed his books and coffee till his passing on November 15, 2020.
