Jr. as we knew him was a very kind soul. We rented a house from him at one time and I continued to run into him from time to time. He could fix anything and always wore a smile. God bless his family at this difficult time.

ride to hoopers island - June 2, 2013 Posted: December 27, 2014 | Last Revised: December 27, 2014 I had never been to hoopers island . I told margret lts go. We were on the way I asked lets see if pop wants to go. well we stopped by and asked him he was so tickled for the chance to go.He lit up like a christmas tree,so we loaded up with some doughnuts and away we went. I could have not had a better tour guide. His love for not only his roots but love of all is family and freinds just made a very special day.It sent a warmth through all of us. We will miss him.
