He was an awesome preacher teacher, who lived out the word of God! He was one of the most phenomenal preachers ever heard! His love for God was displayed in his life as his light shined bright that drew many to Jesus! His life was a true testimony of God’s grace and astounding love. He loved all God’s people. He was a member of the Miami Valley Baptist District Association.
