He was a graduate of Cannon County High School in the Class of 1981. He and Doris met while working at Colonial Shirt Factory and began dating. They married on February 12, 1982 and spent nearly 34 years together. He enjoyed working in the yard and vegetable gardening. He had an artistic ability to draw, paint, make arts and crafts from wood and build furniture for his family. He liked to read mysteries. He was a passionate Tennessee Vols football fan. He always listened to them on the radio because watching the game got him too worked up. He worked for the UCHRA in Cannon County as a driver for several years. He later transfered to Rutherford County and drove for the MCHRA almost 20 years. His health began to decline and he was forced to retire. Doris, Josh and the other family were at his side during his long battle. He was a long time member of the Woodbury Church of Christ.
