A life-long resident of Brundidge, O.K. was a farmer, a small business owner, and a pillar in his community. Known by many and loved by all who knew him, he was truly “one-of-a-kind.” He enjoyed simple, everyday life – working hard at his antique business, gardening, yard work, dove hunting, and spending time with his family and friends.

He was an honorable man, a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, and friend. He will be missed.

In-lieu-of flowers memorials may be made to the Brundidge United Methodist Church or New Hope Baptist Church.
