In May 1951, he graduated from Clearview High School in Lorain, Ohio, where he was very active in sports, lettering in basketball, baseball and track. He enlisted in the Air Force on December 4, 1951, where he had a top secret clearance as he was trained in atomic bomb armament. During his four years in the Air Force, his tour of duty included Korea, Okinawa, and Formosa.
