Was twice commander, Craig-Harriss Post, American Legion. First president Louise Chamber of Commerce. A leader in religious, civic and political affairs. "Leave it to Baldy," (a tribute by Senator culp Krueger): Leave it to Baldy, oft heard refrain. Accomplished by Baldy--his claim to fame. Country boy with a gentle air; for others always time to spare. Served his community, fellow man; worked in harmony with God's plan. "Leave it to Baldy!" rings in our ears, our charge, our challenge through coming years. (1965)
