 He was a member of The Family Worship Center, Church of God in Clarksville. He honorably served his country as a soldier in the US Army for more than 20 years, attaining the rank of Sergeant First Class/SFC and retiring. He enjoyed employment with The Trane Co, Jostens, Truck Driving and Sango Walmart #3495 in the maintenance department.

He loved spending time with his family and friends and taking spontaneous road trips with his daughter. He was an avid Raiders football fan, enjoyed eating spicy foods. He never met a stranger and had many adopted family members at Walmart (you know who you are). He was always willing to help anyone in need. He will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved him.
