Grandpa you will be missed dearly until the end of my days. I wish only I could have spent more time with you and got to know each other better. I love you more than you ever knew and you always meant the world to me. I know now you are with Dad and Grandma, tell them I love them and I will see you all one day.

Chick was a familiar and beloved figure to countless teenagers at HH Baptist during the 1950s. I was one of them, and I cherish the good memories associated with Chick, who was also well known and loved by many other members of the community. Friendly, kind, soft-spoken, he was one of those unsung heros who truly make a difference and for whom, surely, there is a special place in heaven reserved. May his remaining loved ones feel God's love and comfort, and know that you are not alone in your loss.

"Chick" was a great influence in my life and the youth ministry at Highland Heights Baptist Church. He gave his heart to serving the Lord, loving Flora Dell and loving teenagers. (He never called them "kids" - "kids" was a name for goats.) I often point to Chick as an example of someone who invested in the lives of teenagers even into his "retirement" age. This is a true challenge for everyone as we age. Because of this commitment his legacy will live on for generations.

Chick literally coached and taught me how to play baseball and more importantly how to behave as a Christian gentleman as he did many other youngsters at Highland Heights Baptist Church. As managing coach of the "Golden Bears" and later more senior youth programs, he was always Chick to the kids, never Coach or Mr. Prescott. He taught us not only the fundamentals of good sportsmanship, but those of living a good life - lessons remember to this day. Chick, you will be missed and the mold has been broken. To your family, God bless and keep you and know that your grief is shared by many.
