He graduated from Pauls Valley High School in 1953 and from University of Oklahoma in 1957, with a BBA degree in finance. He attended the United States Navy officer candidate school in Newport, R.I.

Upon retirement from First National, he became a banking consultant for two years and left consulting to enjoy family and domestic and foreign travel.
