He was an active member of the Easton Lions Club for many years. He and Catherine later moved to Plymouth where they became members of the Plymouth Yacht Club and explored the beauty of Cape Cod Bay on their various boats. In addition to basking in the beauty of the Plymouth coastline, Jud and Catherine enjoyed many adventures abroad and domestically and especially enjoyed their many cruises. Jud's other hobbies included snow skiing, gardening, and following the New England Patriots and UMass sports teams. Jud was well known for hosting his annual Labor Day Clambake, a family tradition that he started and maintained for over fifty years, featuring his homemade chowder and all the lobsters you could eat.
