He married Patricia Dickinson on October 19, 1946 and was a Lieutenant Commander in the United States Navy. He was buried at sea near the coast of Norway; his inscription on his grandparents' marker is simply a memorial for him.

He was lost when his S2F Tracker collided with another from his squadron on September 24, 1957; all crewmen were killed. They were operating from USS Saratoga during NATO exercises.

He was survived by his wife and two sons, Robert and David. (Information from November 1957 issue of Shipmate.)
