His family extends special thanks to the caring Dr. Arun Rao, the wonderful nurses and doctors at Southeast Baptist Hospital, and the staff at the Odyssey House for providing such a calm and peaceful experience.

A visitation was held on Wednesday, March 23, from 3-7 p.m. with a rosary at 7 p.m. in St. Luke’s Catholic Church in Loire.
A funeral Mass was held on Thursday at 2 p.m. in the church.
The burial was held in St. Joseph’s Cemetery in Leming.
