He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

Daddy, we've been cleaning out your house, and I now have some of your Harley Davidson and Tarheel shirts and all your hats. I've got your thick, black Harley coat. Wish it fit me, lol. I have you in my living room,and the keepsake with you in my room and your glass thumb print charm hanging on a chain on my rear view mirror. You're with me in my house, my car and in my heart... Every minute of everyday. I miss you so much.
P.S. don't laugh, but I've been watchi mg a little Ancient Aliens. If you were here, you would definitely be my commentary on that show. Lol

This is the 1st Birthday of yours that I wont be able to hug you and tell you Happy Birthday... Fathers Day just passed and I honestly tried to just forget that it was Fathers Day, because I wasnt able to spend it with you... Every single day that goes by, I constantly think about you. I hope that one day, it will get a little bit easier without you, but I dont see that happening, unfortunately. Every day is a struggle without you and Mema! I know that the two of you are watching over me and my family! I love and miss you both so so so much!
