He proudly served in the Army from 1955 to 1957 in Korea. He worked for Adolfson and Peterson Construction from 1959 to 1995 as a superintendent on many buildings throughout the Twin Cities.
He had many hobbies including woodworking projects that he would give as gifts. He also enjoyed gardening, starting many trees from the seeds he would gather here and there. We now have these trees that he would share with family and friends. Nothing would light up the room for him as when his granddaughters, Hannah and Sarah, would walk in and throw their arms around him.
