He made his way to Montgomery, Alabama where he worked as the Building Engineer for Robert E. Lee High School. He was loved by all and a stranger to none. After retirement, he moved to Marion, North Carolina to be with his grandchildren. After a long fight with cancer and kidney disease he departed with his Heavenly Father on January 11, 2022.
He is survived by his wife Barbara; son John; daughter-in-law Jennifer; grandchildren Linen and Smith; brother Adrian; sister-in-law Charlotte; their children Kelly and Clint; nephew Travis; and niece Tondra.
