Surrounded by his family on September 30th 2012, Father, grandfather and great- grandfather left this life to join our Father in heaven and those other friends and loved ones who have already passed on. He was born on February 8, 1927 in Shreveport, Louisiana and lived in Shreveport all his life graduating from Fair Park High School in 1945. Then went on to attend Centenary College. After which he joined the US Army and served his country in the aftermath of WWII in Japan.
In 1950 he married Melba Ratcliff and had 3 children. He worked for the US Postal Service for 30 years as a letter carrier and was a union representative for insurance and benefits of his fellow employees for many years. He loved to dance and was quite good at it. He always lived his life to the fullest and believed in the pursuit of fun and laughter! He also proudly served as a minister for the Christian Church in Shreveport and the surrounding area. He loved good food, good friends and having a good time! I'm sure the party has started on the other side with him there!
He is survived by his 3 children; two daughters and sons-in-law; one son and daughter-in-law; 12 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren and counting. His sister of Houston, Tx and his uncle of Shreveport, La. with his niece. His companion for the last 10 years of Shreveport.
Funeral services were Saturday, October 6th at Central Christian Church in Shreveport. Interment followed directly after at Greenwood Cemetery in Shreveport. The good memories of our Dad will continue to warm our hearts until we meet again.
