I remember when he would come by the office to check on insurance and stay to chat a while, he and Jim had some good talks. He was a gentleman and a sweet soul. It was a beautiful service for him today. So sorry to you and your family

Please accept my condolences for your loss. He was a wonderful man! My Father, Robert, knew him very well. I remember my dad would take us down to Tybee on Sundays. We would always stop in to see him. He never minded us kids running around the store and he ALWAYS insisted that we take a few small items to go have fun at the beach. I am so sorry for your loss!
