Granddaughters: Casey (Stephen) Hall, Stacey Patterson, Amanda (Couger) Alleshunas, Brittany (Kyle) Donn and Rebekah Milton. Grandson James Milton. Great grandsons: Zane Hall and Dalton Hall.

His laughter and infectious smile will forever be missed by everyone who knew him. He was happiest when he made people laugh. Family and friends were everything to him. He loved RV camping, especially at the beach and shag dancing. He also enjoyed wood working and made many gifts for grandchildren and others. After retirement, he went to a nearby recreation center to swim and exercise and discovered a whole new world of friends. He competed in their Iron Man competition for many years and even won 2 years in a row. He was a longtime member of East Gate Masonic Lodge 692 in Charlotte.
