He held leadership positions in the Bank Administration Institute and Junior Achievement. He was a deacon at Northside Primitive Baptist Church and served as Sec.

With Norma as his assistant, they enjoyed many travel opportunities and made lasting friendships. Lyndon excelled with building and home improvement projects and he and Norma loved traveling with family, especially cruising.
