Before that undertaking preparing concrete for distribution at Interstate Concrete Company, and before that causing a Washing Machine to perform at maximum capacity for Donjieux's, of Jackson. Should you need a house built in Pelahatchie, MS, a roof replaced in Slidell, LA; a broken down tractor fixed in Leesburg, MS, a motor pulled in Jackson, MS or just hunting, boating, or a fishing buddy, he could do and be it all. He was an accomplished debater. He was one of the few people that could go toe to toe with his older brother Jerry and had Jerry seeking help. His favorite events were the Family Reunions and hosting JSU vs. Valley Game Cookouts. Frying the fish, barbecuing, and feeding the family, that is where he prided himself on being a master chef.
