The son of old East Texas pioneer lineage dating back to the 1840s Lindseys-Stanleys-Halls, he was a life member of the Smith County Historical Society and avid supporter of the Salvation Army and Widows and Orphans of Senior Citizens Auxiliaries.

After leaving the Armed Forces, he went to work for Smurfit-Stone Corrugated Container Division, and retired after 44 years of service.
