Born in New York in 1936, he attended St. John's Preparatory High School in Brooklyn and then Manhattan College, where he earned a degree in Civil Engineering.

He met the love of his life, Ethel Diehm in 1957, and they spent 53 blessed years of marriage together. They raised four beautiful children, Jim, Jean, Christine and Sharon and enjoyed spending time with all of their 10 grandchildren, Alexa, David, Madison, Sydney, Parker, Bethany, Grace, Olivia, Ayla and Sophia.
