Greatly missed by all who knew him. He served his country in the United States Army for which he received many awards and accolades. His love for the Word of God was an integral part of his life and his favorite scripture is found in Romans 8:1-4; “Therefore there is now no condemnation at all for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, so that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.”
