He was instrumental in the founding of the Anderson Home Builders Association and served at its first president. He was also a member of the Board of Realtors from Anderson County and served as its president on multiple occasions. Horace will be remembered as a mentor to many young and aspiring Anderson area homebuilders and sub-contractors. He was always willing to give of his time and resources to see that the industry flourished in Anderson.

He was a member of the Elks Lodge # 1206 and was a consultant in the construction of their current lodge building. He was also a member of the Hejaz Shriners for over 50 years, a member of Pope Drive Baptist Church and he was a Mason.
