He was an active member of the Stillwater Church of Christ, as a deacon for many years in building project leadership and outreach to international students. He owned and maintained rental properties, including two mobile home parks. His avocation, especially after retirement, was his farm on Brush Creek Road, from which the bountiful vegetable crops were distributed throughout the community.
