He was a lifetime resident of Killeen, Graduate of Ellison High School, a friend to everyone, and a car enthusiast. He dreamed of ideas and made them happen no matter what, and if he failed, he would say dust yourself off and try again. He loved to shine his cars up and participate in any car shows or cruises with his friends and family. Every person he met they were his best friends and when you needed him, he was always there. He loved to joke around, give amazing hugs, and loved to talk about the old days and crazy things he had done throughout his life. He loved to find little hole in the wall restaurants and cruise around, but never able to find the restaurants again.
