     He suffered from Throat Cancer in the mid-1980's and was treated with Chemotherapy, and Radiation treatment. Then in the early 1990's the doctor spotted a small spot in his lungs that was a size of a Dime. He was off work for about 2 years suffering from the Lung Cancer. Hospice was a great help with all that he needed, he was on oxygen, and had a nurse that would come out once or twice a week to check up on him. We had Old Log Cabin Camp Meetings just about every week with Rev. Delbert Copas, and other church members from other Churches in the Community. Then he requested to have a feeding tube put in, so we worked on getting that scheduled. He was taken to Mercy Hospital, in Portsmouth, on November 7, 1996, to have a feeding tube put in. He passed away in the middle of the night on the morning of November 8, 1996.

November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month

Certificate of Death
Obituary from the Portsmouth Daily Times (November 9, 1996)
Visit To Mustard Hill Cemetery, on May 24, 2015

     I went and planted some Day Lilies, and Marigolds on my Dad's Grave on May 24, 2015. I was trying to find the pansies that he likes, but no one had them. So I bought Marigolds instead. He really likee the Tall Marigolds, but I bought the small Marigolds. I planted six Marigold Plants in the fron of his tombstone, and planted six in the back, and six around his Military Plaque. I Love my Dad and really miss him so much.
