He was a 1993 graduate of Warren County High School and was a Senior Manager for TruGreen. He was an avid golfer and enjoyed playing with his son, Jalen, his Dad, and many friends.
He was a huge UVA fan and had a strong love for his family and community. He was involved in baseball and softball as both a player and coach for over 40 years. He devoted his time coaching his son, Jalen. He began his coaching career in tee ball, little league, and travel ball, continuing until becoming the JV head coach for Skyline High School. He loved his baseball kids and their families, but most of all he was a proud father to Jalen.
He adored his wife and treasured his mother. His sense of humor always lit up a room. He will be forever missed by his family and many friends.
