He was a member of the Knights of Columbus, Light of Christ Council, #08726, where he served as Grand Knight and held numerous other positions. He was also a Boy Scout leader for many years.

He loved to travel with Bernadine and his family to Disney World, and always cherished all time spent with his family.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by three children: Amy, married to Dr. Stephen R. Lowe, Ellicott City, MD; Shawn, married to Ted Sickler, York; and Kate M., married to Jason Alwine, New Freedom; and six grandchildren: Emily, Brandon, Eric, Adam, Joshua, and Ethan.
