An avid Bison fan, he was a proud member of the NDSU Bison Team Makers.

With a heart for service, he was a board member, officer and active member in numerous organizations, including: ND Board of Higher Education, ND Corn Growers, US Feed Grains Council, ND Farm Bureau, local and state Township Officers Associations, Wyndmere Lutheran Church council, the American Legion, and many more.
