Pleasant High School and graduated from Allen Academy in Bryan, Texas. He played trombone in each school band. Matagorda, New Gulf, and Mt. Pleasant were considered home. As a boy in the summer in Matagorda, he worked on the tug boat. In Mt. Pleasant he worked in a menswear store and also the picture show. He served in the Merchant Marines from 1943-1946.

About five years later was ordained a Deacon where he served the Lord faithfully. He loved all the churches in Matagorda and was on the cemetery board. He loved his family, Lord, church and many loved ones and friends. Now heaven is his home.
