Family and friends called him BJ. He was a fun loving and plain-spoken person. He loved his music loud and his cars fast. He loved muscle cars, racing, and 4-wheelers. It was said he was a “dare devil, who had a need for speed.” He liked many types of sports teams including the Vols, Titans and Chicago Bulls. He worked with his parents most of the last 17 years in their restaurant, Lions Den Pizza. As much as he loved all the other things, his one true love was his daughter, Stella. He called her Daddy’s Princess. He loved bouncing on the trampoline with her, going on adventures in the woods, showing her how to ride a 4-wheeler, and taking her to pet the neighbor’s horses. He spent as much time as he could with her. He was baptized in the Baptist church when he was young and liked attending Plainview Baptist Church.
