He is also survived by three brothers, two sisters and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins. He was preceded in death by his parents, grandparents, two brothers, and one sister.

I've never seen this dear man when he wasn't smiling. A true gentleman and a delightful fellow. He was a blessing and I am grateful to the Lord to have known him.
