He was on the swimming team and was awarded 3 letters. He took part in a school song and dance group called “The Sound Express” and traveled to Europe with the group where they performed for English, French and German audiences. He was generous. From earliest childhood, he would not accept a casual gift unless there was one for his sister. He had a remarkable sense of humor as an adept punster. 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.
