Lisa wrote of her dad:
Dad volunteered in the late 70s and early 80s at Camp Otonwe. He would come down on Thursdays and help pitch tents for our overnight and deliver the kids’ gear to their units. He also spent a weekend each year helping with the Prairie Association yard sale, setting up tables and clothes racks and loading and unloading sale items. The money from the yard sale was used to take our clubs on a weekend trip to Camp Wyandot. He went on our trip and helped. We had a talent show at Wyandot and one year he performed with all the other dads as one part of the Village People.
