He retired from CSX Railroad after over 38 years of service as a conductor. He absolutely adored his wife and all of his "girls". He enjoyed going to breakfast at County Seat, especially with the Tuesday Breakfast Club. Coon hunting was a favorite pastime as was watching a softball game and taking a ride around the block. Above all, he was a man of faith who was excited to make the journey home to be with his heavenly Father.
