He has been currently pastoring Landmark Baptist Church of Dennis, MS since 1999.

He loved watching his grandchildren play sports and spending time wagon training with his buddies and family. He was cheerful in all weather, never shirked a task and had splendid behavior and that big ole smile is going to be missed.
