He graduated from Upper Arlington High School in 1943. He graduated from OSU with a medical doctorate and B.A. degree in 1950. He served as assistant team physician for the l949-l950 football team that went to the Rose Bowl. He was a member of Alpha Tau Omega and Phi Chi medical fraternity. He was inducted into the US Army in the ASTP program which was converted to combat infantry and served in a machine gun and mortar squad. He was wounded one week before the Battle of the Bulge in Germany, December 3, 1944. He received the Purple Heart and Bronze Star for his service in The Timber Wolf Division.

His family history includes his maternal grandmother and grandfather, who traveled on "The Oregon Trail" in the 1860's.
