He was a member of the Knights of Columbus for many years and also belonged to the Elks, and Moose Clubs and the American Legion. He also served on the Board of Directors of Harbor Credit Union and was a longtime member of the Green Bay Area Retired Men’s Club, where he served as “jester’’ for a number of years.
