He served in the U.S. Air Force from 1946 to 1949. He met and married Ellen Burklund on Oct. 21, 1949, while stationed at McCord AFB in Tacoma, Washington. He worked on the family poultry farm in Wilbraham, Massachusetts, with his parents. He left the farm when he developed asthma. He then worked installing bulk feed tanks. He later started his own business as a building contractor. After several years, his asthma forced him to move to a drier climate, and they moved to Deming, New Mexico, in 1971. He worked as a building contractor for several years in Deming. After that, he worked as a rural mail carrier until his retirement in 1991. He enjoyed his retirement by building many pieces of furniture with wife Ellen (his "man"). He also enjoyed going into the mountains and rock hounding.
