Soon after, he enlisted in the Navy and served for nine years including the Korean War.
He then went to work for Gulf Oil and held several roles before returning to Benchley as a full-time cattle rancher. He lived a very active lifestyle for his entire 91 years. He had endless knowledge and utmost respect for nature and wildlife and instilled that love into all those around him.
