He graduated from Conway High School in 1959, attended the University of Arkansas and graduated with a data processing/computer operations degree from Petit Jean Vocational Technical School.

He was a member of Pickles Gap Baptist Church, involved in Bible Study Fellowship (BSF), and an avid hunter (but never without Rowdy, his beloved little buddy).
