From the children:

There is a saying that "a man's reach should exceed his grip". Daddy you have extended your reach beyond your grip with your life accomplishments. Your courage to stretch yourself for the Lord was so amazing. So many people never live up to their potential, but you have. The world needs people who aren't afraid to excel, who aren't embarrassed to be the very best they can be. We need more people like you.

We love you Daddy
A funeral service will be conducted on Tuesday August 17th at 12 noon in Crowder-Hite-Crews Funeral Home and Crematory with interment to follow in Crestview Memorial Park.
