He was born in Manzano, New Mexico on February 26, 1921. He joined the army in 1942 and was stationed as a surgical technician in Axminster, England in the 315th Army Station Hospital. There he met his beloved wife Elizabeth Grace Webber and they were married in 1945. He received the rank of sergeant and was discharged in 1945. Upon discharge he returned to Manzano to fulfill his childhood dream of owning land, farming, and ranching.
