He was a retired farmer, a member of the Bruner’s Chapel Baptist Church and was an Army veteran of the Korean War.
This man was the one of most wonderful people in this world. If you knew him, you knew he was kind, loving and dependable. Not one harsh word came out of his mouth. He was a quiet person, but when he did talk you listened and knew what he said was the truth. He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather and great-great grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. I will miss him, but am jealous that he is in heaven with our lord and seeing all of God’s glory and not here with us. Thank you for all of your prayers to our family. In time, our tears will turn to rejoice and knowing one day we will be with him.
