He attended school at Hammer School in Wayzata, Minnesota, special education class at Lamberton and Swan Lake, Minnesota, and the DAC in Delft, Minnesota. In 1976, he became a resident at Hiawatha Manor and then the Serenity House, both of which are in Pipestone, Minnesota. He attended the DAC in Ruthton, Minnesota and Progress in Pipestone. Among his favorite summer activities were attending camp at Rolling Acres and SOS Camp at Lake Shetek.
