He was a lifelong member of the Auburn Elks and Tacoma Knights of Columbus, and a current member of the Auburn Eagles, Retired United Airlines Employees, Holy Family Parish, and several Croatian and Slovenian lodges.

He was an accomplished mechanic and handyman with a droll sense of humor. He always put the welfare of his family and

friends first.
