Along with four grandchildren and four great-grandchildren with one on the way, one sister Linda Poindexter and her son and her granddaughter of Wynne Ar. After completing high school, he went on to receive his minister's classification. From there, his life centered on his love for Jehovah God and his son Jesus Christ. This meant he was involved in a broad spectrum of spiritual activities as one of Jehovah's witnesses. Just a few of these activities included volunteering to build places of worship, giving Bible discourses, and sharing the good news of God's kingdom and the hope of a beautiful new world with no more suffering or death. He was also a family man and was never too busy to take time out for the important things. He supported his family financially with his locally well-known business Rose's janitorial service of over 50 years. Something else he was well known for was his quick wit and humor.As a family, we would like to thank Patients Choice, Mid South Medical, all the doctors and nurses who had a part in his care.
