There were many great things about him but one of the greatest things was his love for Jesus  and his strong faith. He loved his wife Olivia with all his heart and loved all of his family dearly. He loved his country and always prayed for soldiers serving today. He loved milkshakes and  

his Alabama Football! We will miss his jokes, pranks, and all the stories he told us of his life but  are so blessed to have many memories with him.
