He moved with his family to Cottage Grove, Oregon in the mid 30’s and remained there through high school and his first year of the University of Oregon. Following WWII, where he served as a Navy pilot, he met and married Ruth Kriby and resettled in Santa Barbara. He worked in the photo engraving business and was instrumental in the start of Big Brand Tire Co. After retirement, he and Ruth loved traveling the world until Ruth’s passing in 2000.
