It's the end of an era for our family and the continuance of a legacy. A legacy that my grandfather earned and I am so grateful that he passed it down to us. Granddaddy was always so happy to see his grandchildren and great grandchildren each time we visited. His face lit up even at the end when all he could do was hear our voices. He installed in us a love of nature and the outdoors, an appreciation for hard work, and a calming presence. We loved him very much and he will be sorely missed by all who knew him.

Granddaddy first got me into hunting when I was 12. He took me to the safety course, showed me how to safely handle a gun. Took me up to south pittsburg, listening to Roy d. Mercer the whole way. He'd taught me everything from closing the car door softly to field dressing a deer. I didn't get back into hunting until 3 years ago, but everything about it reminds me of him. From the drive up jumpoff rd to the freezing toes. You have to wiggle them to keep them warm he taught me.

A note to Bud:

The family has lost a good man with your passing.

In the 25 plus years since I married Cara at no time were anything but a kind, caring and gracious gentleman to me, my family and those with whom you came into contact. I’m fortunate to have had you as a father-in-law and thankful that our children had you in their lives. Like I told you shortly before you departed this earth I would not have some of the greatest gifts in my life but for you. So here is a heartfelt thank you Bud. Enjoy the reward of Gods grace.

Dad used to chew Red Man chewing tobacco and when I was little I liked it too. I wanted to chew it like Daddy did while we fished. It made me sick every single time and I would be laying in the bottom of the boat while everyone stepped over me trying to fish. It always got Dad put in the hot seat with Mom when I came home "turned green" as Dad always called it. Mom always told Dad no chewing tobacco for Cherie but Dad always gave it to me anyway. A few years ago I was fishing with Dad and I said hey Dad I feel like I need some Red Man. He laughed so hard I thought he was going to fall out of the boat.

July 16, 2015, attack on Naval Reserve center. Dad and his friend Jim Howard had been fishing and were at the boat ramp right behind the center taking the boat out when police rushed them to a maintenance building near by. When I heard about what was going on I called Dad. They hadn't told them anything except that there was a possible active shooter nearby. There were police and military in the building with them. His voice was shaking and I could hear the fear in his voice. I told him what was going on and that they were safe. They were later taken by bus to the police precinct on Amnicola. After it was all over they were taken back to the boat ramp and sent home.

Daddy took us on camping and fishing trips when we were young. We always hooked him or got our lures hung up in the trees or on something in the water. He had to take the fish off the hooks for us and one of us always caught a bigger fish than he did. The three of us (Cherie, Cathy and me, Buddy was a baby) were a handful in the boat so he started taking only two of us at a time and we did not like having to take turns to go fishing with daddy. There was always a melt down about who was going this time. Dad also taught us how to find arrowheads and Indian pottery. We have the best memories of scouting deer, fishing and camping with our daddy.
