He had many family members unnamed who all loved and cared for him as well. So many friends from all walks of life. He always wanted to see others around him laughing and smiling and he rarely met a stranger. Anyone who knew him would have loved him, he was a hard worker his entire life. To provide for his family he did many jobs. He first started in wood-making with his father building cabinets and pieces of furniture for people. He started in the oilfield 1987 and he ended his time there after a move to Chickasha, OK to work at Delta Faucet. After the plant was shut down, he returned to the oilfield to spend 10 more years. He loved spending his time at the lake doing water sports and driving the boat. He loved being around his family and grandchildren every day after school. He had struggled with severe heart problems for the last 15 years that was ultimately the reason for his passing.
His memorial service will be held Friday March 24th at 2:00pm at Ferguson Funeral Home with Pastor Eddie Cox officiating the service.
