Penn Township High School,
a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh, and a
veteran of the Army Security Agency.
He was a 32nd degree Mason, a member of the Butler
Sure that he was the longest living resident of Penn
Township he was a font of local history.
His second home was Dents Run, Pennsylvania, where
he dearly loved to visit and regale his
fellow hunters with tales of that area.
