He was also looking forward to becoming an uncle in the near future so he could hold and spoil his sister Maria’s baby.
He worked as an electrician and had previously worked with Rollins Excavating. He loved to go mudding, fishing, and ride the back roads listening to music. He was a pure country boy, always ready to lend a hand, and go horseback riding. He was a volunteer with the Mooretown and Westside Fire Departments. Anytime he went out on a call he made sure to turn his siren on right by his family’s house for a laugh. He loved to aggravate his family and friends. He had attended Plainview Baptist Church and was a part of one of the church’s videos “A Gift for a Son”.
