He was a hard worker and loved the coal fields of WV, he spent most of his life in the employ of Dipple and Dipple Coal Co. Returning to work after retirement he worked for Parrotta Paving where he loved interacting with all in the company but most of all loved the home-made Christmas dinners supplied by the Parrottas.
He loved spending Wednesdays with his group of men friends at Wendy’s or one of the local restaurants.
He loved to debate politics with anyone that would debate with him. He was a fighter and never stopped fighting until the last breath he took.
We will miss you and your joking ways. Sleep well Dad.
