Coven was the big brother I never had, while I was going thru St Margaret’s Nsg School. After graduation our friendship and that with Virginia continued at Auburn games, tailgating in that ole trailer! A lot of laughter and spirits , parties & holiday gatherings at their home witch wS always a fun place to be. Thank you, Virginia for sharing Coven to us all. Miss you.

A life friend who will be missed more than words can express. Always there with a kind word, positive attitude and a sense of humor. Never one to quit whether it was staying to the last second of an Auburn game or challenging his illness. A loss that cannot be replaced for myself and many others but he left us so many memories that we will always cherish. Thanks Coven!!

Such a great man and leader, but mostly a friend. Many funny memories. He loved his family and friends.

There are too many memories from way too long ago. Parties, ball games and cruises with sweet Ginny and Coven. What I do know is that he was the most generous, kindest, and funniest person I have ever known. This world is a better place for having that big old galoot in it.

My sincere condolences. I remember the first time I met Covin and his wife, Virginia. We shared a babysitter, Pam (?), in Carriage Hills. Imagine our mutual surprise to find each other working at Jackson Hospital. Covin was always such a gentleman, caring, thoughtful and considerate to all whom he met. I know he will so be missed. Prayers and thoughts for the entire family.
