They made their home at Temple for a time before moving to Medicine Park where he was employed at a hatchery. He soon moved the family to the Oklahoma City area where he was employed by Civil Service at Tinker Air Force Base and was eventually transferred to Sheppard AFB at Wichita Falls working at both bases as an electrical engineer, troubleshooting electronic problems on the flight line.
