He grew up in Humptulips, Washington and graduated from Quinault High School where he was active in sports and played flute in the band. While attending Grays Harbor Jr. College he enlisted in the Army Air Corp and served at several bases in the United States during World War II.

After the war he married the love of his life, Ruth Nadine Rowe, in Shelton, Washington on May 11, 1946.Their first home was in Aberdeen, WA where he continued his education on the GI Bill and worked at a gas station. Upon graduating from Grays Harbor JC, they moved to Shelton where he worked for Simpson Timber Company in accounting and finance.
