With a quiet personality that was easy to get along with, Junior was a man of simplicity who loved his family and valued hard work. He had an exemplary work ethic that set him apart. In his silent, resilient manner, Junior would teach those around him the importance of dedication and perseverance, lest anything be put off for later.

His recreational activities included fishing, playing bingo at the American Legion, and tinkering with old cars. His quiet presence and easygoing nature will be dearly missed by his family and friends. He leaves behind a legacy of hard work and devotion and will forever be remembered for his quiet strength and gentle spirit.
