He was very active in the Rotterdam Elks for many years serving as their treasurer for the past three years, exalted ruler 1998-99, and Capital District Grand Exalted Ruler in 2005.
Some of his favorite pastimes were watching NASCAR racing, playing and watching golf, rooting for the NY Giants and the NY Yankees.
