He was raised and received his early education there, graduating from Storm Lake High School. Following high school he entered into the military on June 7, 1951, serving in the U.S. Navy. He was honorably discharged on June 5, 1955. After his military service, he returned to Storm Lake where he drove truck for a short time and then was a salesman for Midcontinent Bottlers and this job took him to Spencer.
