He later umpired and refereed high school and college baseball and basketball. His accolades in this area are numerous, but his commitment to the art of basketball officiating will leave a lasting legacy and there was barely a gym in the northeast that he could walk into without knowing some- one. His involvement as President, New Haven District Board Approved Basketball Officials and as the long time Secretary Treasurer, New Haven District Board #10 allowed him to mentor many young basketball officials. His honors were numerous and far reaching. He was elected to the East Haven High School Athletic Hall of Fame, Southern Connecticut University Athletic Hall of Fame, New Haven Gridiron Club Hall of Fame and the Greater New Haven Diamond Club Baseball Hall of Fame.
