His sisters: Sandra, Judy (Mark), Johnnie (Calvin), and twin sister, Jane (Bo). A host of nieces, a nephew, and extended family and friends.
PeeWee was a small engine mechanic and a jack of all trades. He could work on anything, build anything, and enjoyed bringing motorcycles back to life. He loved to ride motorcycles and enjoyed the freedom it gave. From the time he was very young he loved and lived to fish. The back of his truck usually kept a pole in it. He was most happy when he was just sitting by the lake.
PeeWee grew up rough and rowdy and well... some things never change. He was tough and never scared to scuffle over those that he loved or the important things. He was a fighter all the way till he left this world. He will be greatly missed until we see him again.
“Out of my distress I called on the Lord, the Lord answered and set me free.”-Psalm 118:5
