After graduating from High School in Boston, MA, he enlisted in the US Marine Corp in August 1941.

Upon discharge from the Marine Corp in 1946 Aime came to Connecticut, where his parents had moved. There he met and married his wife with whom he would build his future life. They were married October 23, 1948 in St. James Church. His wife Lorraine (Dutremble) passed away in 1994. Together they bought a lovely home in Brooklyn, CT, where they raised their four children. Aime loved this home and would live there for 65 years.
