He worked as a pinboy at the Big Twenty Bowling Alley in Scarborough where he met his future wife, Sarah Jane Pennell. He was a proud member of the Armed Forces serving in the Army National Guard, the Navy during the Korean War; the Air Force serving one year of isolated duty in Saudi Arabia. After being honorably discharged he went to work for the U.S. Coast Guard Base in South Portland as a civilian employee where later in his career he was made Foreman of the Electronics Shop.
