Born Feb. 4, 1928, in Redwood, NY, he attended the Dillion School House on the Dry Hill Road and Adams Center High School.
He worked on the family farm on the Killenbeck Road, and pursued a logging career at age 17 with his brother, forming Killenbeck Logging & Trucking in 1945. It continues to flourish to this day with his sons and grandson. During that time he also was a milk hauler, had a scrap route and worked on pulp boats in Sackets Harbor. He retired in 2008.
He married Genevieve Spearance on Dec. 7, 1949, at Baggs Corners. The couple lived on Dry Hill before moving to their home in Pierrepont Manor in 1958. He purchased the Winn Caster Farm on County Route 91 where he continued to farm until his retirement. In 1971, he purchased the Killenbeck Family farm on Killenbeck Road on Dry Hill. He operated the two farms until he sold the Dry Hill farm in 1978. He was an icon in the area and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
