Time is one of the greatest gifts to give to someone because it is something that we can never get back. I look back at Papaw’s life and the amount of time and selfless hours he gave to so many so that their lives would be better. Papaw was not only a husband, a father, a grandfather and great-grandfather. He was a farmer, friend, mentor and a leader. He was veteran of the United States Army. He served on boards of several organizations within Wythe County. Positions included seats on the Board of Supervisors for Wythe County, St. John’s Board, Dairymen Incorporated Board of Directors, Agape Food Pantry Board, Farm Bureau Board of Directors and a number of other boards and committees. He was a true servant to the agricultural community and all of Southwest VA. Most importantly he was a man of God. His faith was felt by those around him and every action came from his heart. The amount of love and lessons he gave his family, friends and community will not be forgotten but, live on through all of us impacted by such a special man. A private memorial service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to St Johns Cemetery Foundation Fund or Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, 405 West Main Street, Wytheville, Va. 24382.
