Dad, thank you for being the greatest, most caring and loving dad ever, and for teaching me the importance of family. You were always so brave and strong, and it showed more than ever when Mom went to be with the Lord and you were without the love of your life. I can't tell you how much I miss you already. There won't be a day that goes by that I won't think about you and wish I could pick up the phone just to hear your voice. Thanks for all the fond memories and laughs we shared together as a family, I'll cherish them always. We love you forever and always, Devon and Tina.

I remember when I used to go to his house in the summer and pick ripe peaches from the tree with him. Another thing I used to do was help him stack wood. I know I am gonna miss him. I love you Grandaddy.❤️
I remember when I stayed at his house, I would pick fresh peaches from the tree. Another thing I did was I helped stacking wood. I am gonna miss him.
So sorry for your loss Devon, Tina, Kenan, Georgia, Donna and Families! I am thinking of you all with love and prayers.

Dad was such a fantastic man. I can’t put into words how strong he was. It was truly amazing how good he did (and how hard he tried) after we lost mom in 2015. He sure did love mom with all his heart. His family was all he cared about in this world. He is with Mom now. Thanks Dad for all the great memories. We love you with all out hearts. Kenan, Georgia, Karina, and Michael
Everett and I began a friendship in 1976, when we argued about my ability to sell merchandise. He eventually wore me down and I took the job. He was the best boss I had ever had.
We hunted, fished, camped, and worked together. Some friendships are eternal and this is one of them.

I will forever remember him. I miss him dearly and send my love to his family. Now I think to myself he’s in no pain and at peace.
