He started school in Dana, a tiny sawmill town in western Massachusetts. In the late 1930s the town succumbed to the advent of the Quabbin Reservoir, Boston's water supply. The family moved to Springfield, MA, where he continued his education until he joined the U.S. Army Air Force in 1943. After WWII he became a civilian field engineer assigned to the Armed Forces. For 6 months in 1954, he was assigned to the Quonset Point Naval Air Station, and continued working there until 1974, when the station closed.
