In his younger years, he worked for some neighbouring farmers, while continuing to help out his parents. He attended Flower Valley school which was just east of the farm. After marrying the love of his life, Mildred, they took over the family farm as his parents retired. They had the dairy, beef, pigs, chickens and grain, a mixed operation. In 1960, a new farm house was built. There were always improvements to the farm like going from a crushing mill to a roller mill for feed. Going from square baling to round baling. In 1975, a milking machine was installed. Mom and Dad were active in social dances in the area. They loved music and dancing. They loved to socialize and did alot of entertaining at the farm. They were involved in the Christian faith with the Landrestreu congregation and later with Christ Lutheran Church, Langenburg. Dad was active as elder and trustee at Landrestreu.

They moved into a house in Langenburg where they resided until 2013, then moved to senior housing by the water tower until Dad moved to Langenburg care home in the spring of 2014.
