He was a charter member of Open Bible Baptist Church. He loved to share and teach the word of God, and the importance of family. He had many “favorite” Hymns. He loved having family get togethers, a good joke and telling them. He loved and respected his Wife of 61 years, he loved his children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and all the extras they brought into his loving home. He was a numismatist and machirologist; he loved to share his treasured finds with everyone. He also loved fishing too. He was our rock on solid ground.
