He was a great provider and a great dad and grandpa.
He attended New Union Missionary Baptist Church over 60 years and was entrusted to hold the title of Deacon by the Lord and his Brothers and Sisters in Christ! He knew the Word from beginning to end. He always enjoyed sharing his knowledge of the Word.
He cherished church and family. He also enjoyed driving his truck, his pipes, and chewing tobacco. He was a happy go lucky person but would put you in your place quickly even to the day he passed. He would keep you laughing and on your toes with some of the things that would come out of his mouth. He will be dearly missed by his loved ones, who celebrate the fact that he is at peace with his Savior!!
