Later the family moved to Waterloo. He became an auditor for the state sales tax department, a position which he held for 30 years, up to the time of his retirement in 1957.
He was a member of the Masonic lodge and of the El Kahir shrine, Cedar Rapids, of the Elks Club, Waterloo, and of the Congregational church in Waterloo.
He is survived by his wife and one son, Claire, LaCrosse, Wis., and a daughter, Rose Marie. He was a member of a large family of brothers and sisters, none of whom survive.
