He loved to cook, have fun hunting, fishing, bowling and many other activities. He also was a great provider and very hard working person. He was baptized in Jesus' name under the leadership of Elder Joseph Turner at the Bethel Temple Apostolic Church in Richmond, California. He served on the usher board and contributed by cooking in the kitchen and anything his hands found to do, he willing accepted the challenge. We will definitely miss his peach cobbler and cabbage dishes. He will be missed by many and we can say farewell for now, but We Shall Meet Again.
