Born on September 24, 1933 in Pottsville, PA., he was a son of the late Tennyson A. and Stella M. Hand Moyer. He lived the first 17 years of his life in Lincoln, PA.
He graduated from Tremont Township High School in 1950 and Tremont High School in 1951.
His first job was working at an independent coal mine. He worked in construction jobs in Pennsylvania before moving to Washington DC in 1955 to become a brick mason, a profession that he dearly loved. He worked and built homes in Washington, DC and Northern Virginia. He attended Strayers Business School for one year studying accounting.
On September 1, 1956, he married his high school sweetheart, Seray I. Maurer in the Tremont Reformed Church in Tremont.
