I always envied Tiffany for having such a great dad. I he was always there to help anyone that needed help whether it be with a flat tire or driving across dates to help with children, he was a great man. I’m very lucky that she had him for as long as she did I’m glad that her kids got to know him and he will be missed by so many people. That’s what happens when you’re a genuine good guy that helps people out of the kindness of your heart. He’s been in my life since second grade and those are the best best memories I have growing up. He taught me how to ride three wheeler, feed cows, fish Etc. i’m going to miss him bragging about how well I rode with them boys out on the chat piles i’m going to miss that feeling of home you have when you’re around him. I love that my son has known him for 12 years and that he calls him Papa, it wasn’t only me that cried the day Tiffany called and told us it was him to. Austin loved that papa . So every time I see Hutton or people trying to shoot deer after dark or fried potatoes or his great catfish secret batter I will smile and think of him. I know he is where he wanted to be when his time came he’s watching down on us now and One day will see him again. His strength and his strong believe in heaven and God helps me to see a way to get through it and I think it helped him to something he sincerely believed in. He will be greatly missed and no one will ever take his place or come close

Once when Hig and I were hanging out alot I was sitting in the living room of my duplex and heard an awful commotion outside, when I opened the door I find Hig trying to park his truck on my front porch. We had some fun times together and he was a true friend and would have done anything for his friends See you in heaven my friend!
