      h as PTA president for the Quincy schools and was a founder of Quincy Junior College. As a member of Bethany Congregational Church, he served on many committees and spearheaded financial campaigns. With a passion for sports, he followed all of the Boston teams with enthusiasm while maintaining an avid interest in the college football leagues he had come to know as the son of a Big Ten official and inventor of the ten yard marker, the football measuring template, and various officiating stop watches.
