In addition to his talents with sales, he was active with his community, serving on Team Jaffrey and was instrumental in the restoration project of the Park Theater in Jaffrey. His favorite job was a crossing guard for Jaffrey Public Schools as he especially loved the children, who lovingly called him “Mr. D.”   He was a long-time member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Post 5613 in Jaffrey, NH holding positions as Adjutant and Senior Vice Commander, and was also a Member of the Masons.
