He loved seeing his grandchildren participate in extracurricular activities, but most significantly, he loved seeing them accept Christ and get baptized. He was adored by family, friends, and those he ministered to. He will be missed. The pallbearers are Rick Mitchell, Joey Saldaña, Jimmy Holliman, Hilary Shirley, Robby McMillian, and James Knight. The McDonald’s Coffee Crew, Rose Boulevard Baptist Church, Blake Winchester, Macey Milligan, Mayson Jaindl, Gene Cook, George Norris, Martin Place neighbors, New Life Baptist Church, and Reverend John Hamilton will be honorary pallbearers. Instead of flowers, the family wants Gideons International donations. “We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body and present with the Lord.” 2 Cor 5:8 KJV
