Born June 21, 1925, in Nashville, Tennessee, he enjoyed the blessing of a long and fruitful life.  As a young Navy seaman, he saw action at Iwo Jima and Okinawa during World War II.  Upon completing his military duties, he served as a police officer in Arlington, Virginia, and then worked for thirty years with State Farm Insurance in Florida and Tennessee.  His love for the Lord, his wife and family, and his many friends was punctuated by his humble spirit and pixie sense of humor. A member of Covenant Presbyterian Church; he had the privilege over the years of serving his Lord as deacon and elder.  Frequently he enjoyed the opportunity of speaking to men’s groups and to young individuals about his military experience and his salvation.
