He belonged to three fraternities: The Epsilon Gamma Chapter of Alpha Tau Omega, Pi Delta Epsilon (Vice President), and a member of the Omicron Delta Kappa (Sigma Circle), an honorary leadership fraternity.

His studies were interrupted by the war in 1944, which he entered in the second wave of D-day. He served in the 1st Army, 9th Division, 3rd Battalion, seeing action as a Corpsman in France before being wounded in Belgium by mortar fire. He received the Purple Heart and returned to his unit in time for the Battle of the Bulge, the capture of the Remagen Bridge, and liberation of several POW and concentration camps in Germany.

Upon his return, he married Joanne in Sharon, PA in 1946 in a traditional Serbian Orthodox wedding. They had originally met at a USO social before he shipped over to France.

Fulfilling a life long passion, Doc painted landscapes and scenes from southern Maryland. He and his wife loved to travel and were frequent attendees of the Kennedy Center and Arena Stage. He also found time to get his pilot's license to fly small planes. Reading history books and doing the daily crossword puzzle were always part of his daily routine. We will miss his irreverent sense of humor and the compassionate care he gave to us all.
