He graduated from South High School in 1952 and was a proud alum of The Ohio State University, where he earned a BS in Business Administration in 1957.

In his more than 35-year tenure as a steward to the printing industry in Ohio, he served as president of the Printing Industry of Central Ohio, and the consolidated Printing Industries Association, Inc. serving Ohio and Northern Kentucky. During that time, he earned the reputation of being a trusted and valued source of industry information and a mentor for those who worked with him.
