He was the first St. Joe fire chief and instrumental in establishing the St. Joe Fire Dept. (1964). He was on the County Board representing St. Joe back when it was common for the Town Chair (1975-1982) to be the County Board member, too. He served on the St. Croix County Zoning Committee and worked on many of the early county zoning rules, among them setting up the Farmland Preservation Zoning for the County in 1982.
