He was on the board at the Youth Emergency Shelter for many years, and served in the Morristown Rescue Squad for almost 20 years. He has been an active member of Buffalo Trail Baptist Church for more than 60 years, serving as treasurer, Sunday school teacher, and on many committees, as well as helping with building and grounds upkeep and security.
