He served on the board of directors of both organizations. He joined the Empire Statesmen in 1990, playing contra bass, baritone and solo soprano in the horn line over the next 15 years. He also served as a brass instructor of St. Andrew’s junior drum and bugle corps in Cambridge from 1975 to 1980. His other positions with the corps included equipment manager and bus driver.
