Lodge #83, Edinburg, Virginia, past member of the Front Royal Moose, where he called bingo for many years, the Loyal Order of Moose, Woodstock, Virginia, Fraternal Order of Police, NOVA #35, past president of the Shenandoah Shores Volunteer Fire Department and retired long time board member of Oakwood Cemetery.
