He graduated from Delta High School in 1964. He then attended Colorado State University and graduated with a Forestry degree.  He began working for the Soil Conservation office in Durango. He liked the Durango area and made that his home for a few years.  He sold Farmers Union Insurance and later was co-owner of a parts store there before he returned to Austin and started a construction company with his Uncle Willard Demmer. They erected a lot of the onion sheds in the Delta and Montrose area along with several other metal buildings.   He later went to work for the Division of Water Resources for 23 years until he retired.

He also introduced them to the game of golf which they enjoyed together. He enjoyed ATVing and wildlife viewing when he was spending time at the property on 25 Mesa and made many friends and acquaintances over the years while exploring 25.  He has spent the last 10 years enjoying watching his Great Nephew Derek play baseball with the Delta teams.  He loved going to the jeep rock crawling rallies in Moab with Nome, her sister Virginis and brother in-law Owen.  The four of them also enjoyed a long extended vacation to Alaska and several National Parks when they retired.
