He graduated from Walter Lutheran High School in Melrose Park, Illinois, then received four years of training after which he became a skilled carpenter. He went onto become a builder/developer of residential and commercial properties. He was in the building business for 50 long years and it remained his passion until his death.
Throughout his life he loved being around the water. His passions included fishing, diving and trips to the Bahamas. His greatest love in life was his family, church and friends.
