He graduated from Tolna High School in 1968. He went on to earn a degree in Physical Education from North Dakota State University.

He loved spending NFL Sundays with his boys and his dog, Steeler. He loved his family dearly and took so much pride in his grandkids. Many of you know him as the King of one-liners.
