Served on the Board of Deacons, Antioch Baptist Church.
Dairy farmer. Owned a prize-winning Biltmore Dairy herd on Duck Creek.
As his grandson between the ages of 12 and 16, I spent two months of my summer vacation working on Papaw's farm. I started my day by getting up at five am driving the tractor to the bottom and herding the cows to the milk house. During these four years, I earned the first year of my college tuition. On the farm, gained an appreciation for the value of work and I learned the true meaning of family values. (Hugh Barnes)
