He was the rock of his family. He fervently loved his wife, his children, their spouses & his grandchildren. He loved his boat & was the Captain of the ship as many wonderful memories were made on the lake. He captained his boat as he did his family - smoothly through many storms.
His legacy will be carried on forever through his children & grandchildren.
He was a faithful fan of the Titans & had only missed a few games in the last 13 seasons. His children so enjoyed the games with their Dad - especially the Music City Miracle play where he taught them to never give up & never leave a game early. His mother, Peggy, bought six original PSLs for the family & they have been enjoyed by four generations so far.
