He was a member of Christ United Methodist Church on East Bayview Boulevard in Norfolk.

Teagle and Mary Lou Clark of Williamsburg, Patsy Henson and Margo Welsh of Norfolk, and Bridget Cox of Ohio; his nephews Mike & Jeff Roberts of California, Byron Hodgin of Edgewater, Florida, and Wayne and Van Clegg of Tampa, FL. several cousins and grand nieces and nephews and one granddaughter.

He loved life and lived it to the fullest and will be truly missed by all those who knew and loved him. A memorial service will be held at Christ United Methodist Church at 1601 East Bayview Boulevard in Norfolk on Saturday at 11:00 AM.
A reception will follow in the Church Social Hall.
