After moving to Goodwater, Alabama, he worked at Dixie Craft where he retired over 40 years ago. For ten years he had a family group, The Spiritual Five. They performed on the radio station WBRS for four years. He was one of the last living members of The Goodwater Male Chorus. Also, he served as a member of the Masonic Lodge several years ago. He was a big hunter, a great fisherman and built his own special boat, so that his family could enjoy. He was an outstanding carpenter! He was a man that took pride in whatever he was doing. We are going to miss all his wisdom and contagious smile. Thank God for the years that you gave him to us!
