He was always quick with a hearty laugh. He loved the Lord and made a living working with his hands. He was a founding member of Heritage Baptist Church in Chesterfield, VA, and utilized his carpentry skills in the building of the church. The family is grateful for all the love and prayers of his church family and, although we will miss him greatly, we will rejoice in knowing that, through Jesus Christ, we have the hope of reuniting with him one day.
