He loved camping, fishing, and traveling especially to the Smokey Mountains and Cades Cove. He has always been a diehard Saints fan and was thrilled to see them win a Super Bowl. He loved his family and loved keeping up with their accomplishments and events in their lives. He was a member of Annunciation Catholic Church in the Kiln.
During his life and career, he has met many friends and enjoyed keeping in contact with them. He was always more than willing to help anyone in need, friends or family, without even being asked. His calm, caring, gentle soul, and smiling face will never be forgotten. The impact he had on many lives will carry on, making his mark on this world.
