NC jeweler dies

He was devoted to the Apex business community serving as charter member of the Apex Rotary Club as well as Triangle Youth for Christ. He also served the community in the Apex Jaycees, the Apex Library Board, the Downtown Merchants Association, and the Apex Chamber of Commerce who honored him as Citizen of the Year in 2006. He was a member of the Apex Masonic Lodge and the Amran Shrine.
