After the war, he attended Oklahoma University and graduated with a degree in Civil Engineering. He retired from the U.S. Government Federal Dept. of Roads in 1972. After his retirement he had a successful career building homes and motels throughout Texas. He loved to reminisce with his children and grandchildren about his childhood and those times during the war and about his college years. He always made sure everyone knew he had lived a very fulfilling life. He enjoyed farming, tending to his cows and spending time with his family and friends and oh...let's not forget his Dachshunds. He enjoyed them tremendously.
