He was a member of North Toxaway Baptist Church and enjoyed the Senior Adult Sunday School Class. He loved to be with his hunting buddies, walking in the woods hunting for bear or 'coons, spinning yarns, or playing a mean hand of Set-Back. He enjoyed living his life on his farm raising a variety of animals, including, chickens, guineas, peacocks, doves, pigeons, pigs, donkeys, milk cows, beef cattle and his beloved registered Morgan horses, planting a garden each year, bailing hay and sitting on the front porch swing after a long day of work.

His family would like to express a sincere thank you for the loving care and kindness provided by the wonderful doctors, nursing staff and workers at the Brian Center and Transylvania Regional Hospital in Brevard, Pardee Hospital and the Elizabeth House in Hendersonville.
