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.
