He was best known by loved ones for his unwavering loyalty, astounding bravery, irresistible sense of humor, exceptional work ethic and, in summary, his absolute dedication to family, faith and country. He was cherished and will be sorely missed.

A private service was held at his home in Alvin, Texas.
