He took an active part in the affairs of the town, being a member of the Methodist Church, a member of Van Meter Lodge 762, AF&AM, and a charter member of the Rotary club.
Surviving are his wife, Lynn; one daughter, Betty Tice of Greenview; two grandchildren; four brothers, Jay, Harry, and Lee, all of Athens, and Roy, of California; and one sister, Mrs. Frank Graham, of Athens.
