He took ownership of the Miller’s Market grocery store with his brother, he grew it to what was later called Food Town, which eventually was owned only by him.
As a business owner in Cozad for over 45 years, he was instrumental in Cozad’s growth by hiring many employees and giving opportunities to grow within the store’s business. He was a very giving and caring employer who, for many years, threw Christmas parties where all members of the employee’s family received a Christmas gift. He had a unique gift of striking up a conversation with anyone, even strangers, and making them feel right at home.

During his 62 years in Cozad, he was one of the original members of the Cozad Elks Lodge and of the Cozad Country Club.

Over the years, he enjoyed activities such as fishing, golfing and water skiing, where he was talented in trick skiing backwards. He and DeLoris loved traveling overseas and throughout the United States. He was a captivating, quick-witted human being with a great sense of humor, who had a love of hard work as an entrepreneur and a huge love of family and friends.
