I Had So Many Great Memories Growing Up With Jr. In Eldorado. Theres Way To Many To List. I Could Make A Book On Them. We Camped Out In His Yard In Eldorado Many Times When We Were Young, Jr. Mark And Me We Was Maybe 12 Years Old. My Favorite Memories Of Jr. We Would Go Watch Drag Races At Tri-State Dragway Every Weekend In Mid 1980s. I Will Miss A Great Friend Forever. Chuck Davis

I only knew Junior for about four years now and he was a joy to call my brother and friend. Always faithful in Sunday school, bible study, and church. I will miss my brother! May God's peace be with you Carla and boys, and the rest of the family, as Junior is finished with pain and before the throne of God with the great saints of old!
