He was a deacon of the Church and ushered and passed offerings as well as participated in lots of fellowship activities within the Church. After becoming saved he was on a mission to spread the gospel. A clear and loving message that he expressed and spread daily was "Jesus loves you and wants to save your soul" to each and every person he encountered and spoke to. In previous years he loved to play cards and always wanted to play professional baseball. He was left handed and had a heck of an arm. He retired as a mail handler where he unloaded big semi trailers filled with sacks of mail. He was a hard and dedicated worker. One of his favorite hobbies was bowling and for many years he bowled on many leagues. He also enjoyed wrestling and watching it with his beloved wife Evelyn.

Cousin Gary would call me through the years to check on how the family in Ohio was getting along. He always had kind words to speak and always ended with a prayer. He could really dance back in the days of Motown Soul at its peak! RIP

I remember when Lynn & I were about 3-5 years old and we would have Christmas at Grandma Atchisons (moms, mom) dad dressed up as Santa 🎅 Claus and carried a huge sack full of Christmas presents for all of us. Christmas was so magical...he also walk around outside put prints in the snow and jingle belled & HoHoHo'd so loud you could almost feel his belly shake from our beds. 🎅 I Love you Daddy!! 💗💗💗
