He attended Massy Draughon in Montgomery, AL and finished the accounting program at Modern Business Academy in Montgomery, AL. He married Betty Garrett in December 1948. After working as a cost accountant for six years, he decided to return to farming. He moved his family back to the farm after living in Milton and Pace, FL.

In addition to farming, he also owned Laird Flying Service and Laird Power & Equipment Case dealership. He was joined in operations there with his son Gary. After closing these businesses, he operated heavy equipment and dug ponds. He loved his bulldozer and excavator work.
