He was preceded in death by his mother and only sister, Louise Bailey Garrett.

Graveside services will be conducted at 1:00 p.m. Sunday at Oakbrook Memorial Park in Greenwood with Rev. Marcus G. Coker and Rev. Russell Dean officiating.  A memorial service will be conducted at 2:30 Sunday at the Chapel of Martha Franks Baptist Retirement Center.

The family will receive friends at Martha Franks immediately following the memorial service.

It is with grateful appreciation that the family recognizes the officers, nurses and staff of Martha Franks Baptist Retirement Center for their care and kindness.
