November the 9th of 1971, the world was blessed with an amazing joy. My Daddy was born and nothing would be the same. As time passed, he grew to a wild and adventurous teenager. He became friends with so many in our little small town. Time continued and Dad began to venture out into the world. He found a love for electrical work, and he worked for a long time as an electrician with Proctor and Gamble through a subcontractor named Frucon. In 2006, Dad, his girlfriend Jessica, and my little brothers, Austin, Cory and Gage, were involved in a tragic motor vehicle accident, which would alter all of our lives forever. In result of the accident, Dad began to suffer more and more. He broke his pelvis In 3 places, 8 ribs, a broken leg and a broken neck. In May of 2014, Dad had his 1st of 8 heart attacks, and 2019 he was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Dad had been fighting for several years to get some help from the government but was continuously unsuccessful. He had been out of work for 4 years, but did everything he could to scrape up enough money to buy his medications. On Saturday, January the 9th of 2021, Dad lost his battle here on earth and went home to fish in the big lake in the sky. Dad's suffering was over, and he was finally at peace. Though he had been so sick and in so much pain for so many years, he always had a smile on his face and showered everyone with love. I do recall several conversations with Dad, where all he wanted to do was talk about going fishing or working on cars. He could be extremely off putting at times, but he always found a way to make up for in other ways. My Daddy was definitely a one of kind man and he will forever be missed by those whose life he touched during his short time here. During Dad's battle, he was unable to achieved an insurance policy that would pay for his final arrangements, With that being said, I am creating this fundraiser, in hopes of being able to help my Daddy have the funeral that he truly deserves. We would like to thank everyone in advance for helping, and would also like to continue to ask for prayers as we continue on our journey in mourning for our beloved son, father, uncle, cousin, nephew and brother.
