His passion was volunteering in the Boy Scouts of America as an adult leader for over 50 years. During that time he was acknowledged with the Lamb Award (LCMS) and the Silver Beaver Award. He was devoted to his faith and was an active member of St. Paul Lutheran Church. He often said that his three loves were family, faith, and Troop 48.
