Remarks from Stepsons: He was a positive role model and father figure during out pre-teen years leading up to manhood. Hard work was never an issue for him, this is what lead us to a successful Military career. We will all miss him. Remarks from Latrice: If I did not know anything else I know that my grandfather loved to fish, sit around and whoop anyone who would dare to sit down and play dominos with him. He was a great cook and loved to bake while listening to his favorite blues records. He was never shy to say whatever came to his mind, and even if he made fun of you, the smile he gave you at the end would cure the sting.
