He was born in Sentinel, Oklahoma on May 1, 1933. His family then moved to California to give his family a brighter future. He graduated from San Pedro High School where he met the love of his life Ethel Oriani and married her on June 9, 1953. He served honorably 3 years in the Army. Thereafter, he and Ethel started a family and had 3 children that they raised in Torrance, California where he worked as a Pressman until he retired, and he always said that he loved his job. Upon retirement he moved to Bullhead City, Arizona.

He was involved in his kid's life teaching them everything about cars, fishing, camping, Little League Baseball, home improvement-you name it he taught them. But most of all he taught his kids to be kind, loving and good people. He was a shining example to his family and everyone around. He never met a person he didn't like. He was kind to everyone he met.
At the age of 80 he found himself in a new chapter and decided to get involved in the Elks, Moose and VFW where he began singing Karaoke. He received such happiness from singing and listening to others sing. He would go to Karaoke and dancing at least 5 times a week. This became a joy that fueled his life.
