He was the son of the late Frank Henry and Anne Childs Mason. Mason Station of Wiscasset, Maine was named for his father, former Chief Engineer for Central Maine Power in Maine and New Hampshire. He spent his early years in Winthrop, Maine and Damariscotta Mills, Maine. Here he established a long relationship with St. Patrick's Church, where he was an altar boy. He attended St. Johns Prep in Danvers, MA, New Hampton School, NH, and University of Pennsylvania Wharton School of Business. Prior to World War II, he began his flying career with Eastern Air Lines. He started flying at the age of 16, and then flew for 37 years for Eastern Air Lines. Robert C.

His interests included boating, art and antiques. He was a familiar face at area auctions.
