He loved family, bingo, peppermints, food, and going to other people’s funerals. He enjoyed going to church. He would cry at the drop of a hat. His favorite song was “Achy Breaky Heart”. He also loved raising pigs and his pride and joy was “Bessie” the Heffer, who was lost in Bedford and then found and returned safely. He was quite the socializer and well known wherever he went. He earned his wings.
