He graduated from Mason High School as salutatorian in 1965, got his pharmacy degree from the University of Texas in 1970, and his Doctor of Pharmacy from the University of Tennessee in 1971.
He worked in the Pharmacy Department of the University of Kentucky Hospital. He met his wife, Nancy Ann Kelty, there and they were married December 29, 1973.
He was an Eagle Scout and worked a couple of summers as a counselor at Camp Tom Wooten. In high school, he was on the Annual Staff and was editor his senior year.
His family has enjoyed for years the products of his hobbies. As a photographer, we all have pictures we wouldn't have had without him. As a woodworker, he made us clocks, lazy Susans and a wood chopping block. He also did leather tooling which led to purses and carry-ons.
He is survived by his wife, his mother, his daughter (Mary Elizabeth), his brother (James Leo) and his wife Jan, his mother-in-law (Mrs. Kelty), his brother-in-law (Ed Kelty) and family, his aunt and uncle (Patsy and Silas Brandenberger), cousins (Bob, Ann and Andy), and several nieces and nephews.
