He was educated in the public school system of Calvert County and after attending Hall's Creek Elementary School and William Sampson Brooks High School. He wasemployed with Thomas Lumber Company and then moved on to Owings Lumber Company which later became Sneades ACE Hardware, and he worked there until his health failed in 1993. Whenever he spoke of the hardware store, he would always say ACE is the Place'.
He had a true passion for playing baseball and was the first baseman for the Owings Eagles Baseball team. He was well known for his ability to stretch out, capture the ball and to get the base runner OUT'.
In 1966 he was married to Myrtle E. Holland and from this union two children were born. He also became the loving father of three stepchildren. The children called himDad', but would sometimes call him Curly', the nickname that they gave him.
