CALIFORNIA HE WAS A STUDENT AND ATHLETE OF REDLANDS HIGH SCHOOL AND WAS DRAFTED INTO THE ARMY BRANCH OF MILITARY SERVICE WHERE HE SERVED WITH HONOR AS AN ARTILLERY SPECIALIST DURING THE CONFLICT IN VIETNAM.

HE WAS MOST PROUD OF HIS GRANDDAUGHTER FOR ENLISTING AND ENJOYING A CAREER IN THE UNITED STATES NAVY. HE WAS ALSO AN ACTIVE MEMBER OF THE AMERICAN LEGION POST #650 IN REDLANDS, CALIFORNIA.

HE MARRIED IN 1970, AND WITH HIS WIFE SHELLEY THEY TOGETHER HAD 3 DAUGHTERS WHO ATTRIBUTE THEIR LOVE OF MUSIC TO THEIR FATHERS’ MANY TALENTS AS A MUSICIAN.
