He married Else Schmidt Nov. 8, 1949. The couple were married in the Corn High School gymnasium because the church had burned in January of that year.

In 1995 he helped start the Mission House for the Homeless in Clinton and served on its board for many years. He also assisted with the building of a new kitchen and dining area at Mission House, as well as several other projects there.
