He was in the Air Force for twenty-six years and retired in Great Falls. After his military retirement, he went to work at Cascade Electric for many years and took pride in being able to fix anything.
He loved Montana so much, he never wanted to leave. His ability to grow massive quantities of tomatoes was legendary and giving them to everybody brought him tremendous joy.
