He created Road Ends 4H Club where he was a pillar of society. He produced high quality Simmental cattle that competed on a national level. He orchestrated dozens of fundraisers to give back to his community and to also give “his kids” in the 4h club the ability to highly succeed not just in a show ring but in life in general. 

He was a proud member of the Lions Club, Florida Cattlemen’s Association and the American Simmental Association.
