Our Pops was a great husband, father and grandfather and his family loved him so much. His grandchildren and great-grandchildren were his favorites. He was also a good uncle to all of his nieces and nephews. He enjoyed Alabama football, hunting, fishing, and golfing with his sons and his nephews. He always enjoyed taking home a goody bag of leftovers or treats any time he visited any of his relatives. Family was everything to him and spending time with his family is what he loved to do most.
