"I first met Foots around 35 yrs ago when I was 7 or 8, it was so funny to meet someone named Foots and he would never tell me his real name, then so I would stop asking him, he would say his name was Willie Ham Hibblie Hobbler, there is more to that name, but I'll keep it PG.  I grew up with a bunch of Doodlebuggers because my dad was one, and my dad and Foots were pretty good friends so he was always around.  I have a ton of memories of Foots but the one I keep thinking about, is when I was hospitalized for 5 days in Wilburton , OK back in 1983, and Foots would stop in and visit in the morning before work, and at night after work, he would sneak in slurpees for me.  He was one of a kind and he will be missed.  Im so lucky to have been able to spend time with him and call him a friend.  Rest easy Willie Ham Hibblie Hobbler..."

"Ok so I have been trying to pick one story to share about Mike..... I CANT! There was so many over the years. So I'm gonna share my most grateful and hardest story Mike, Chelsi and I share.....


For anyone who knows Chelsi or myself you know that since 2nd grade we was inseparable. If you seen me Chelsi was near and visa versa!!!

Chelsi and I was in our junior year of high school it was a Friday afternoon... We was out riding around in my mustang, probably supposed to be getting ready for the football game. Lol We seen some friends (boys) drive past us so of course we was yelling at them out the window. I was not paying attention and hit the run off drain between McDonald's and the court house. Ughh what an embarrassment... I bent the rim and popped the tire..... My mom was furious!!! So after every football game Chelsi and I had a ritual of throwing "get togethers" at grandma's house. Mom did not want me to go. She wanted me up at 6 am to go buy new rims and tires. Of course Chelsi and I begged and pleaded until she gave in. We stayed up til God knows what time doing God knows what.... But if you know my mom I had better be up and ready at 6 am..... For some odd reason I woke up 10 mins before the alarm and actually got up. Lol I remember turning the alarm off and sitting on the side of the bed with Chelsi laying behind me. At this point I don't remember anything else until I wake up inn the ambulance.

You see, I had a full blown seizure! From this point all I know is what Chelsi and Dad have told me. Chelsi says she woke up because my head was thrown on her stomach knocking the wind from her.... She screamed DADDDDD!!!! And foots was in the room in what seemed like one step! He immediately grabbed my head and held me so I would hurt my head anymore on  wall then what i had already done. He calmed Chelsi down and had her call 911 and tell them I was seizing. He then had her call my mom. He saved me. I could of done serious damage if he was not there to hold me. He saved Chelsi that day, Idk if any of us would of known what to do when seeing your best friend, your sister convulting on your bed. And he spared my mom from having to see me that way! He was always there in a flash when he heard his little girls screaming. No matter what it was he did hesitate. He would pick us up and hold us. Now if your scream was uncalled for, after he held us and seen we was just being big babies....... Well let's just say we can just imagine the words out of his old hick ass!! Lol

I love you dad! You was the only dad in my life for the good, bad and everything in between!!!!"

"I got to meet Foots when I drove down to La Bell with his daughter Chelsi and his new granddaughter Brynna Grace. I was excited for them and nervous for me. See for 7 sevens I had seen what a great father he was & I had heard Chelsi say what a wonderful guy he was. I seen how he was always there for her when she called him, how he took the time to listen to her and always knew what to say to make her feel better, so I was nervous. But once he got there that day we arrived I knew exactly what she meant. I instantly felt like I had known forever. We had such a wonderful visit great people, (Foots ctr of course), great food, great times. They were all wonderful. I pay that tribute because he was such a great guy, you had to be a great person to have him. He later got to come to Kentucky, which is really where he started. You will be missed not only by family but just by those that was blessed to have known you. #RIPFOOTS"

"I met Foot when we were just all dumb ass kids "doodlebugging" in Oklahoma. That was in 1983. He was a boss then and was a boss the rest of his life. He had an innate talent for getting the job done, no matter how difficult, while treating everyone who has ever worked with him the utmost respect. It was truly a gift and there were none better at it. He remembered every backroad he had ever been down 30 years ago and almost every property owners name that we ever crossed. One of the most intelligent and caring men that I have ever met. Cool breezes and calm seas, my brother. RIP you will be missed by all of us."
