To Sandy and Court's Family: Court was one of the "good ole boys" from class of 56 at Cyprus. He was very intelligent, quiet, friendly, and always a gentleman and loved and respected by his classmates. We missed him at our last reunion.
I was able to spend some time with him and Sandy after they moved to Hurricane and my husband Frankie and I enjoyed our visits before Frankie passed away. It was always nice to have short visits with them and I have missed being able to stop by over the last several years.
To his children: When our parents retire and move South it is hard to be together but may you find that love lives on in the memories of the heart. With sincere sympathy, love and respect.
