He was a volunteer driver for the Shriners, transporting children to and from the Shriners Hospital. He was a generous man with his time and talents. He was proceeded in death by all his brothers and sisters, his wife Marilyn, and his wife Bettie, truly the last man standing. He will be missed by his numerous nieces, nephews and friends. His story telling is legendary and many got better with the years. There will be a Celebration of Life at a later time.
