He graduated from North Judson High School in Indiana and went on to earn a Bachelor’s degree from Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana, a Master’s degree from American University, Washington DC, and a Doctorate from the University of Colorado, Boulder. He was a veteran of the U.S. Army where he worked in the intelligence field. After his military service, he started his career as a teacher.

After working as an Industrial chemist in Boulder, Colorado for 5 years, he became a professor at the State University of New York in Fredonia for 12 years. He went on to run his own business in computer consulting, sales, & service. A devoted husband for over 61 years, he met the love of his life, Hilary Skilton, while hiking around a mountain in Maryland with the Wanderbirds Hiking Club in Washington DC.

He was curious, skeptical, and inventive as a problem-solver. He had a sense of humor.
