They were blessed with four children who love them dearly. He was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and loved serving in many callings throughout his life. He served as a missionary in the Northern States Mission from 1955 – 1957.  Later, together with his wife served a mission at the Richmond Seminary with the special need’s youth.
