Temple was a loving son and caring brother, and always put family and friends first. He was loved and respected by all who knew him. Born with a smile, it was clear even at a young age that Temple would bring joy and laughter to all who would come to know him. Living life to its fullest, Temple always seemed to find his way into your heart.
Temple graduated from Haltom High in 2006 and was planning to join the military. He started working at StyroChem for Doug Foss and within a short time excelled and was well liked. Temple was quiet, respectful and polite to everyone. He took great pride in his work, never missed a day, and was always on time. Circumstances landed Temple a job at Coors as a CDL route driver.
Temple was always ready for a good hunt, supported NRA and loved drag racing. He enjoyed jet skiing and tubing with his best friend, Andrew. Temple was a huge fan of paintball, along with Cody, his best friend. Suzee kept Temple in check. He was an all-American young man with dreams and aspirations to make something good out of his life and to make his loved ones proud. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
