He was a faithful member of the Turnerville Holy Church of God where he served as a Deacon and Sunday School teacher. In 1968, he moved his family from Saraland, Alabama to twenty acres in Turnerville, Alabama. While continuing his job with AT&T, he along with help from his wife and six children farmed the twenty acres raising crops, cows, chickens, hogs, goats, etc. He retired from AT&T in 1986 and became a full time “Cowboy Farmer” living the life he loved. He also loved to fish and hunt. Due to his wife’s declining health, they moved to the guesthouse on their daughter’s property in Citronelle, Alabama about ten years ago. He was a faithful caregiver to our mother during this time until her death. After moving to Citronelle, Alabama he began attending and was a faithful member of the Cedar Creek Holy Church of God. During this time, he made many more friends and greatly enjoyed eating out, drinking coffee and talking with them at the local restaurants in town.
