He was a very hard working man, working in many different fields in order to provide for his family. He loved to watch boxing and pretend he was a part of the fight from his chair, he also loved going to the races. He was known for his practical jokes. He was a jack of all trades and loved working on things. Family and friends tell stories of his foot massages for pain relief. He was a great family man and will truly be missed.    Serving as pallbearers are Trevor, Trent, Travis, Dustin Hayes, Buddy McCain, and Ronnie McCain.
