The deceased was a member of the Joint State Government Commission and a member of the professional licensing and education committees. During his legislative career he served as chairman of the banking committee of the House for two terms and was chairman of the professional licensing committee for one term.
A 33rd degree Mason, his Masonic affiliations included the Garfield Lodge of DuBois, the Williamsport Consistory and the Jaffa Shrine of Altoona. He was admitted to the Supreme Council as a 33rd degree Mason in 1946.

Commenting on the death, Weir W Mullen, county chairman of the Republican party said:
"The county has suffered a real loss in the death of Representative Krise. His faithfulness in carrying out the duties of his office and his constant interest in promoting the general welfare of his constituents were outstanding factors in his being elected to six terms in the Legislature."
