He loved going out in the swamp in his airboat and fishing at Sebastian Inlet but more than those things he loved his family and friends. He was a loved by all who came in contact with him as he had a very vibrant personality! He had a very contagious laugh and beautiful smile that will live on in our hearts forever.

Brother, I said goodbye to you tonight. But, it doesn't seem real. You can't possibly be gone. I'll miss your wonderful sense of humor and your golden smile. I'll miss your phone calls checking in on me and telling me how much you love me. You were an amazing big brother...You were always our protector and always made us feel safe. Rest safely in the arms of God brother. I cannot wait until the day I will see you again in heaven. Love you more then words can express. Death cannot separate our love or our bond with one another. Until we meet again. So long!
