He attended school in Natrona County and started his own business; Foreman’s Quality Machine and Repair in the garage of his home, then built his successful shop on Salt Creek Highway in 1980. He retired from there at the age of 63 at which time his son, Warren assumed the helm and continues his legacy of quality craftsmanship to this day.

He was an avid outdoorsman and enjoyed camping, hunting, fishing, boating, snowmobiling, and had a love of life in the wide-open spaces of his beloved Wyoming. He loved his family dearly and was always glad to see them; telling them stories, taking them for quad and boat rides, fishing, and traveling extensively across the country visiting 95% of the USA.

He leaves behind his wife, Margie of 59 years, two daughters, Kelly (John Shipman) in Washington, Lori in Texas, and son, Warren in Wyoming, three grandsons; JR of McKinney, Texas, Michal Shipman of California, and Torin Shipman of Oregon, two step-granddaughters, Traci Chidester and Tami Miller both of Washington, one brother, Ken, and sister, Mary both or Oregon as well as six great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, Loren and Georgia, one brother, Larry Robert, and sister, Dee Ann.
