He owned his own business in Clemmons for 20 years. He was an active member of the Jonestown Civic Club and Pine Grove United Methodist Church. He was a beloved Cub and Boy Scout leader for 15 years. He loved his family and friends deeply. He enjoyed fishing, camping, dirt bike and golf cart riding. He was very active father and grandfather and enjoyed life to the fullest. His body was cremated and a service was held at Pine Grove United Methodist Church on Jonestown Road on Friday July 11, 2014.
