His mother moved the family to Los Angeles after the war when he was about 8 years old. The family lived in Griffith Park at government veterans' housing called "Rodger Young Village" where he sold newspapers in Downtown LA to make extra money so he and his brothers could ride the horses there.

He served in the military for 2 years in the early '60s and when Helms closed in 1969 he opened his own successful print shop called Keystone Graphics.

He was a kind man, well known in the community, loved by many and a colorful part of Culver City's rich history. He is survived by his 3 sons, a daughter, a sister Elaine, and brothers Charlie and Jesse. Thank you Father, Brother, Uncle, Friend, & Coach, May you Rest in Peace!
