I served in the Army Air Corps in WWII and the U.S. Air Force during the Korean Conflict. I graduated from Maryville College, Maryville, TN, in 1947 and worked 55 years for Crawford and Company of Atlanta, GA. I enjoyed playing in and later watching baseball, basketball, tennis, and golf and also watching my grandchildren play soccer, volleyball, and football. I accepted Christ as my Savior and Lord and was raised in the Mars Hill Presbyterian Church, Acworth, GA. As an adult, I enjoyed membership in seven different Presbyterian Churches in five different cities. Special for me were the Good Samaritan class and several mission trips with the youth of Westminster, the Men's Sunday School Class at Woodmont Baptist Church, the Sunday School Class at Glen Leven, and the Men's Bible Study Group at Sugartree. Graveside services will be held at 1 p.m. EST Monday, October 7, 2013 at the Liberty Hill Cemetery, Acworth, GA. My eight beloved grandchildren will carry my casket. Honorary pall bearers are Dr. Jim Elliott, Howard Isaacs, A.D. Denny, John McBee, and Bob Martin. Visitation with the family will be held at 4 p.m. with a memorial service at 5 p.m. CST on Tuesday, October 8, 2013 at Glen Leven Presbyterian, 3906 Franklin Pike with Dr. Mark Bryan officiating. Memorial donations may go to any church that proclaims Jesus Christ as its head.
