Cremation rites will be accorded following the services and burial of ashes will be held at a later date.

He attended school at Rose- Hulman, Indiana State University, University of Cincinnati and Western Illinois University of Macomb. He married Donna Rose Garry on May 21, 1960.

He was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Barbara Ann Lyons and brother-in-law, Leroy of Terre Haute.

He worked as a R&D specialist for Western Tar, Riley Tar Chemical and Metallurgical Engineer for Diamond Chain, BCA Ball Bearing Company, Federal Mogul Company in Greensburg, Ind., Detroit, and Macomb. He retired from NTN Bower Corporation of Macomb.

After retiring, he was involved in the community of Macomb, attending several city council meetings and also ran for local office as alderman at large.
