He quite school halfway through his second year at St. Joe's, and played semi-pro basketball before signing with the Wilmington Blue Bombers of the ABL in 1941. After the season, though, he entered the USMC to serve in World War 2. As a marine, he saw combat in Okinawa and at Guadalcanal. After the war, he played basketball a few more years. He would eventually move to Seminole, Florida, where he was a manager of Park and Starkey Liquors and would open up his own sporting store there, too. He died in Florida in 1999 at 81 years of age.
