I can't say I knew Spoons very well. We met for the first time at the "family reunion" in Las Vegas and I couldn't believe the family resemblance! He was funny and kind and I was glad to have met him.

I will forever be heartbroken.
You were not only my uncle you were one of my main supporters.
Not matter what I did or said , you stood by me right or wrong. I will miss those calls and funny messages I have saved . That laughter that nobody would understand.
I'm not going to say good bye, i will say ...see you in my dreams and when i get there.
Love your baby girl forever

Dear Beth and family, It was my honor and pleasure to know “Scoop”. What a kind and gentle man. He always displayed a wonderful presence with everyone. It was my honor and privilege to attend your wedding which though small was so full of love.
I am so happy to say that though we didn’t see each other often, I knew he was by your side and there for your families. I am proud to say I knew this wonderful man. Love to all, Julie❤️🙏

I was sad to hear about Spoons. My family knew him and his former wife Carolyn aka C.C. They were our extended family and loved very much. Spoons was active in his church at Buchanan West He loved singing in the choir and was a follower of Christ. He loved our children and spoiled them as if they were his own. We always enjoyed listening to him play the spoons , having fish frys, and spending the holidays together. One of his favorite quotes was WWJD. What Would Jesus Do?
