An avid fan of race car driving, he competed in the East African Safari Rally in Kenya and decided to work in Africa for many years in Peace Corps and later for USAID. He was a member of several associations, including The Lions Club and The Harley Davidson Motorcycle club. He had travelled to many parts of the world making lifelong friends and scrabble buddies.
