His relationship to the Lord was very important to him. He also loved his family, music and playing pool. He had a fun sense of humor and enjoyed sharing laughs with others. He was a man of few words, but when he spoke you knew his words were meaningful.

In lieu of flowers, he would love for others to donate St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. The family will have a private service at a later date.
