He was a machinist by trade at Bethlehem Steel in ultra-sound/non-destructive testing and a carpenter. Later in life, he was an avid duck hunter and motorcycle enthusiast.

Survivors include his son Guy of Tokyo, Japan; his sister Mary Sagisi (Ronelle) of Hawthorn, Ill.; nieces and nephew Sarah, Summer and Sam.
He was preceded in death by his infant son Todd; his father Carl and his mother Virginia.
At his request, his cremation was at Goglin Funeral Home, Tyndall, South Dakota with his cremains to go back to Indiana with his best friend Gary Anderson to be scattered at a later date where he grew up, The Dunes on Lake Michigan, where his parents’ cremains were scattered by David.
