He retired as a Rails Inspector for the Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) for 25 years. He was also the owner/operator of Spell’s Brushcutting Services.
During his life, he was active in Boy Scouts where he achieved the rank of Eagle Scout. He was active in 4H and enjoyed the activities of fishing, hunting, and rafting. He loved to “tinker” on multiple projects and go “wandering” taking us on many adventures.
His legacy includes, not just his children and family left behind, but his spirit of volunteerism with Central Holmes Christian School, 4H, the Coxburg Community Center, and Boy Scout Troop 64. He was always there to help a neighbor in need. He will be missed by his family and community.
