He later earned Certified Public Accountant status for the State of Illinois. As a commissioned officer from the ROTC at Iowa, he was called to serve when war was declared. In 1942, he joined the Air Force, rising to Major and flight-instructor in the States for the balance of World War II, with over 2100 hours in the air his credit, primarily flying B 52's. [probably B-25's].
      After discharge from the service he moved to California and became involved with the fledgling electronics industry, including Hewlett Packard, in Silicon Valley. He spearheaded several small innovative firms as CFO and CEO, specializing in financing new companies or taking struggling firms out of bankruptcy until he retired.

The couple moved to Medford in 1989. He was a member of Rogue Valley Country Club, the Northern California Golf Association, and the Shriners Masonic organization. He served on the boards of RVCC and Eagle Crest Vacation Resorts for several years and was honored by the NCGA in 2001 for his years of service as a player, tournament marshal and officer in that organization. He was also a charter member of Spyglass Hill Golf Course of Pebble Beach, CA and helped establish the Poppy Hills Course as well. Golf was his great love for many years, prior to and after retirement.
