He graduated from Guilford High School, class of 1955, and then served in the US Army. He provided for his family by cutting and hauling wood, and later worked at Pride Manufacturing in Guilford until his retirement. He was well known in his younger years for keeping local game wardens on their toes, as he had a passion for hunting and fishing, in season (or not).
