He and Evelyne settled in Coppell in 1975 and moved to Southlake in 1993 where they still reside.

He helped so many people throughout his life and loved nothing more than being with those he loved. He had a BIG personality and BIG dreams and fulfilled many of them as he built a successful business. He worked diligently for his wife and children and possessed great affection for his grandchildren. A high school quarterback who maintained many childhood friendships. He was a loyal and loving friend to many and built a brotherhood with his fellow brothers of Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity where he also served as a pledge trainer. A lifelong lover of animals from a childhood skunk to his numerous dogs including Sig, Ep, Duchess, Pepper, Foxy and others to his wild raccoon family at Possum Kingdom Lake which he tamed and hand fed until the end. A Christian with a deep faith, he was a member of White’s Chapel United Methodist Church of Southlake.

He left a lasting legacy of love, loyalty, faith, and devotion. He will forever be missed.
