He worked closely with other veteran service organizations and the City of Austin supporting their furniture moves and Honor Flights. He was recognized by the Texas State Legislature for his work with these veterans. He was also active with the Ohio State Buckeye Alumni Club and met regularly to watch the Buckeyes play football and beat that team from "up north". His dogs and cats were also of great importance to him. He was always taking in strays "just for a day", but it always turned into a forever home.
