On June 21, 1940 in Springfield, Temple was united in marriage with Edna Aileen Tyler. Temple and Edna shared nearly 67 years of wonderful memories together.

Temple took a position as an accountant in the general records office at the Pentagon where he worked for 14 years. He actually wrote the last check which paid off the Pentagon construction expenses. He later transferred to the National Archives. It was while working in this position that his job took him on several trips to Japan. He enjoyed bringing Edna Japanese treasures he would find.

Temple accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as his personal Savior and made his profession of faith when he was a young boy. He attended the Deerlick Baptist Church.

He will also be greatly missed by his dog, Tara.
