Brother started out his work ethics at the age of 12 felling trees for 3 truck loads so impressed by the boss he got him a social Security card. He did farming work right up to when he married Virginia. I wanted a family to take care of so I wouldn’t be by myself.

He got a job working at North Ship Co, moved to Camden, North Carolina. The oldest child in the 6th grade. In 1979 he got diagnosed with asbestos. Before that he dedicated his life to Jehovah God in 1975. His lunch break was field service. He worked with the brothers in Virginia as well as here in Elizabeth City. His life centered around Jehovah no matter the trials he faced he didn’t leave Jehovah. Even in the rest home (water brooke)he was still witness- ing for Jehovah.
