in Rugby, ND. He was

raised in Rugby until his

family moved to a farm in

Pierce County in 1938. He

worked in farming and

construction until his en-

try into the United States

Army in 1951. He was as-

signed to the post en-

gineers at Fort Richard-

son, Alaska, where he

rose to the rank of cor-

poral before his honorable

He was a founding

member of Little Flower

Catholic Church and for

many years served as an

usher at the Saturday

evening Mass. Ever curi-

ous, he maintained a life-

long love of reading news-

papers, magazines and


He was an avid fan of

the University of Notre

Dame, and especially of

its football team. His af-

fection for North Dakota

manifested itself in the

many road trips he took

with his brother Leo to

check crops and construc

tion projects. Stops for

pie and coffee were a

must on these outings.

When not reading, he de-

voted a great deal of time

to prayer, attending daily

Mass and saying the

erosity of his time, talents
