He not only was a son, husband, father, grandfather, brother, brother-in-law and uncle to many, he was a man of much pride and devotion to all.

    Sophie Stan Alice and Yolanda and families, our thoughts are with you at this difficult time losing a husband father grandfather brother uncle and cousin. He was a great man remember going to farm when his parents were alive and helping with the tobacco, mostly playing but there was some work accomplished. He is a peace and no longer suffering from that dreaded disease. Remember the good times and they will help you get through this.
