Memories Timeline


  1. Alexia and family, I was so upset to see T's name in the obituary. I have been waiting on T at the Teachers's Credit Union for a long time. He was such a pleasant and kind man. He will be greatly missed. If you need anything please let me know. With my deepest sympathy.

  2. Alexia and the kids,Words can never express how sorry I am about T. He is one of the most caring people I have ever known. I always admired him in many ways as a Father, a friend, and a Christian man. He loves his kids with all his heart. T and I were Royal Ranger commanders for a couple of years together, and he was one of the few that did not even have a son in the program yet. He just wanted to help out. T always wanted to help out in any way he could. He was as genuine of a person as I have ever known and always put others first. You kids had as good as a Dad as anyone could ever have, and he has instilled traits and qualities in you that can never be taken away. You will always have Him inside of you. I can only imagine the sounds from Heaven as he walked through those gates and the Lord welcomed him home. T left a great legacy and know that everyone else saw the qualities in Theron that you saw daily. We were all better from knowing him.
