Due to the governmental temporary restrictions, there will be a private graveside service at Bear Creek Baptist Church with full military rites given by the Yadkin VFW Post 10346. Since there’s not a public visitation, the family would like for friends to take time to remember the fond memories of their dad and to take time every day to hug their own family and cherish each day with family.

Memorials: Bear Creek Baptist Cemetery, 492 Bear Creek Church Road, Mocksville.
