To the family of Junior my thoughts and prayers are with you all. Junior was a good man. I was his dispatcher at Voyager for many years and he even came back to see me about 6 years ago.

Junior was a great man. He was part of the Parkdale family here in Belmont, he might have worked for another truck line but he was here from daylight to dark bring in cotton. Always had a smile and kind words to everyone. Janice is also a sweet and loving kind person. My heart goes out to her and the family. He will be missed by alot of people in Belmont.

Junior was such a kind, caring thoughtful and wonderful man. He always made me laugh when he would sing the song Hello Josephine how do you do to me when he drove a truck at the Warehouse in Belmont for Voyager. I will miss him dearly. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family.
