He loved to play pool and talk with family and friends, which included spending time with his special friend Joan. In his younger years he would cut firewood for many people that were in need. If he wasn't working you might catch him hunting or more than likely you'd find him in his boat with his favorite fishing buddy Jerry Headrick, reeling in countless crappie over there 20 plus years of friendship. Sometimes he'd enjoy just kicking back and listening to some good ol country music and enjoying a sweet treat.

In addition to his parents and wife of 43 years, he is also preceded in death by one sister Mildred Foxworthy.
