He gave hundreds of Holy Bibles and books by his favorite author Charles Spurgeon to friends, loved ones and Veterans at the VA Medical Center. He loved his fellowman and many that knew him saw him serve the Lord after his military retirement by giving of his talents, time and money. Friends would say, "I have never met anyone as kind, giving and caring as Maurice." You knew he was a child of the King of Kings because indwelling in him was great love, great faith and great hope. Always a loving spirit to others because he knew God's love so well.
