He was a member of the St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church for most of his life and worked untiredly as a volunteer for the St. Vincent de Paul Society, a Catholic charitable organization, for many years, a work he dearly loved. In 1935 and again in 1938 he enrolled in the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) Camps for a total of 4 years. This is where he began his carpentry apprenticeship. In 1942 he joined the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America, Local 1319 and remained a loyal member until his death. He was a World War II U.S. Navy veteran, serving his county honorably and with great pride.

He was also involved in the Catholic Charismatic movement and had been a member of the St. Francis Xavier prayer group. He also attended many regional Charismatic conferences. In his younger years he was an active member of the American G.I. Forum, a veteran's family national organization, where he joined the membership in their fight for human justice and civil rights for all people. He remained an active member until his health began to fail him. He was an alumni of the CCC Camp, New Mexico Roadrunner Chapter 141, Albuquerque, New Mexico, an organization of former CCC Camp enrollees, which he enjoyed very much to be a part of. Procopio spoke about the following highlights in his life: 1. The gift from God of a wonderful wife and family. 2. The ability of being able as a professional carpenter to build homes for his children. 3. His stint in the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s. 4. His U.S. Navy experience during World War II. 5. The 1995 San Marcial reunion in Socorro, New Mexico, commemorating 66 years after the Rio Grande Flood, which destroyed completely the beautiful town of San Marcial. This was for Procopio a very joyous reunion, when friendships were renewed and many happy memories were shared by all. 6. The privilege of being a member of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America, Local 1319. 7. The spiritual moments that he spent praising Jesus Christ, His Lord and Savior, together with his brothers and sisters of the St. Francis Xavier prayer group, as well as other catholic charismatic prayer groups. Should family and friends desire, in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in his name to the St. Vincent de Paul Society, St. Francis Xavier Conference, 817 Arno SE, Albuquerque, NM, 87102, or to their favorite charitable organization.
