He devoted his life to God at an early age joining Blue Run Baptist Church, while in church he found his love for singing. He was a member of the Senior Choir at Union Baptist Church, JT Jackson Ensemble, WMC Spiritual Aires and the LN Smith Ensemble. He was a devoted husband, father and grandfather who wore many hats. He knew how to outdance anyone on the dance floor and roll the ball down the lanes at the bowling alley with his eyes closed. He loved football, baseball and softball and was also a dedicated coach.
