“Scooter” as he was affectionately known, will always be remembered as a fighter, a charmer and a respectful and wonderful man. His smile would light up any room. He was meticulous with his style and loved to look sharp! In his downtime, he loved listening to music, writing poetry, discussing his military career and cooking. He was a hard worker, a provider, and a wonderful husband to his wife. He loved his family, especially his “pop-pop” Bishop Charles Cephas.
