While in college, he worked at Tommy Lou's Shoes, the family shoe store in Gainesville. He served in the U.S. Marine Corps where his passion was forever with the Marine comrades with whom he served. He was proud to have served in the military, and was an active lifetime member of the Fourth Marine Division Organization.
