He was quite the storyteller who loved and cherished his family. He was called “Unc” by the Wireman boys while they were growing up. He was a cool grandpa and took his grandchildren to Waffle House on Friday nights. He loved and was proud of his grandchildren and what they have become and enjoyed camping with them. He was a Vietnam veteran of the U.S. Army serving twelve years, two years in country as a sergeant with the military police. He was employed at Terry Jack Neon Sign and Signsource USA. For many years, he was involved in construction/carpentry. He also did apartment maintenance work and was a Jack of all trades.
A special thank you to John Imes, his brother-in-law, for taking care of us for the past couple of years.
