Dad had 10 children with our mother. He was proud of all of them and the 50+ grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great great grandchildren. He loved to hunt and fish and one of his proudest moments was participating and winning the liars contest at the Alabama Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo. He loved to laugh and talk to anyone he never met a stranger.

He was and still is a fantastic PawPaw Courtney. He loved all his children, grand children and great grandchildren with all his heart. One of his favorite dishes was “chicken & dumplings” with banana pudding for dessert. Burger Master was his favorite breakfast spot and his dog “Lil Man” was everything to him. Now you know some fun facts about our PawPaw Courtney.
