He was a veteran of World War II and the Korean War. After his return to Neillsville he worked for a few years at the old Milk Products Cooperative plant. On February 27, 1963, he reentered the army and in 1965 received a medical discharge. He was married on June 7, 1938, to the former Minerva Davis in Maquoketa, Ia.

Survivors are his wife and a brother, Reinhold, of Seattle, Wash.
