As a child he attended a musical conservatory in St. Louis, where he studied piano and discovered the felicities of jazz, fostering a lifelong interest in playing the piano.

He was member of the Episcopal Church of the Nativity and actively participated in the life of the Episcopal Church of the Epiphany in Guntersville during the summer months.
