While living in Duncanville, he was ordained as a deacon at Northside Baptist Church. Also, from the 1950’s he was the owner of Vaughan’s Lawn Service. His many clients appreciated his love of a well-groomed lawn. He hired many people to work part-time for him. He modeled being a hard-worker and devoted extensive hours to earning money for his family. He graciously shared his money to help pay for college expenses for his daughters, son-in-law, and grandsons. In his free time, he liked to fish and deer hunt. He especially enjoyed going to his land in Carbon. Known as “Pappa” to his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, he was a proud man who shared his love of flowers, trees, and landscaping.
