He graduated from Livermore Falls High School in 1940 and served in the United States Army Signal Intelligence Service [Southwest Pacific] from 1942-1946. Upon his return he worked at the Massachusetts Eye & Ear Infirmary, Boston, Massachusetts and lived for many years on Beacon Hill. He never married. In the 1980s, he retired and returned to North Jay, Maine. In 2003 he returned to live at the Lane Farm in Fayette where he resided until February.
