She preceded him in passing on October 1, 2005. He had to leave this earth August 1st to keep a special date on August 2nd to reunite for their 65th wedding anniversary celebration, which was more important than events of this world.

He had a successful career with a large, multinational corporation, which took his family to live in 4 states and 1 foreign country, and him to many cities, states, and countries for business travel. His real life's work began at retirement with a Radio Shack computer. He spent the next 25 years researching the genealogy of our families. He provided all members of our family with fully documented data that made possible membership in DAR, First Families of Tennessee, and many other historic organizations. He was a Christian man who will be missed by his family and friends, especially his friends and special caregivers at NHC Farragut.
