During his junior year in 1957, he began working for Fey’s IGA, and in 1960 with Safeway Supermarket. He was transferred to nine towns in three states, Oklahoma, Kansas and New Mexico. While working for Safeway he began as a sacker and worked his way to store manager. In 1985 Safeway sold the El Paso Division to Furr’s Supermarket and he began working for Furr’s in Portales. He was an usher at the church he attended and a board member at Portales, New Mexico. He attended Victory Fellowship at Blackwell and served as an usher there. He also assisted with Camp Fire Girls as a board member and camp supervisor. His hobbies included fishing, hunting and working on his cars. While working in Guymon he participated on a bowling team. He married Christine Dunsworth on July 10, 1979, in Portales and they lived there for sixteen years. The couple moved to Blackwell in 1995 to be near his mother. Following their return, he worked for Shepherds, Apple Market and Horner’s. In 2004 he began enjoying retirement.
