He had no patience with the petty ostracism games often played by young people and took the part of those against whom the games were played. He took intense interest in all his courses. He enjoyed learning. He was a member of an Explorer Post of the BSA and became very knowledgeable about edible wild plants and survival techniques. He was active in his church and served as an acolyte.
