He was also a member of the National Rifle Association (Benefactor), Texas State Rifle Association (Life), Houston Zoological Society, and the Liberty Rotary Club (Past-President 1985-86), and the Baylor Law Alumni Association. He was active in the First Baptist Church of Liberty, Texas, Columbus Avenue Baptist Church in Waco, and Highland Baptist Church in Waco, teaching Sunday School and serving as a deacon for many years.
