He was greatly loved by his family and friends. Honorary pallbearers will be Haywood Wallace, Tom McKinnon, F. A. Hill, and Tommy Cater. The family wishes to express a special thanks to Dr. P. V. Blanchard and the staffs of Willis-Knighton North and Lifecare Hospital. The family suggests memorials be made to North Keithville Baptist Church.
