He served as a longstanding Board Member for the North Little Rock Chamber of Commerce. He was also an active member of APICS and the Sherwood Chamber of Commerce.

Bettis, with whom he spent almost 10 years. He loved golfing, baseball, dining at El Chico, traveling on cruises, classic rock, and supporting local theaters.
