He graduated from Boston College in 1941, coming back to finish his college degree after serving in the Army in Fort Ord, California. On April 19th 1950, he married his high school sweetheart Carolyn and their marriage lasted a wonderful 53 years until her passing in 2003.

His career began in department store retail merchandising, and through promotions took him to the following cities Buffalo New York, Portland Maine, Charleston, West Virginia, and finally, Birmingham, Alabama, as general merchandise manager.

He was very passionate about his work, and always strived to be the best. This was reflected in performances that were unmatched in both careers by subsequent successors. His sales enthusiasm has continued in both of his children.
