He was proud of being named “Rookie of the Year” in the 2003 Longview “Hands on a Hardbody” contest sponsored by Patterson Nissan. He was a gentle, humorous, loving man who enjoyed his family, books, classic movies, and his dogs. He will be missed by those who loved him dearly.

Brothers Hally, Wyland and Tommy; sisters Carol, Rethea and Sherrie; sister-in-law Nora and Wolfgang Kulp, and a large extended family around the world.
Honey, we’ll always remember you. We wish you were here with us, but someone more powerful called you home. You’re now seeing the face of God and meeting again those you loved who went before you, especially your Mother and Father, and best friend/coffee-mate Lena Mae.
