A memorial service will be held on Sunday, January 3, 2021 at 2 pm at Cedarwood Community Church with Rev. Donald Young, Pastor Grady Russell and Chaplain Craig Holloway officiating.

He was the pastor of Cedarwood Community Church in Wetumpka. He served as Director/Counselor at Alabama Council on Compulsive Gambling and was a long time member of Gamblers’ Anonymous.

His hobbies were photography, public speaking and of course, preaching. He especially enjoyed James Bond films. He remembered many outdated quotes that most people didn’t know or had forgotten. He leaves a permanent void on his family and many friends.
