He enjoyed the company of his son-in-law, Selmar Humphrey Jr. He truly loved a good chat with his brother-in- law and sister-in-law Mike and Tammy Treadway; sister-in-law Linda Morefield and Donna and Richard Fritts have been a special blessing. He never met a stranger and was an expert at starting up a conversation with anyone.His legacy is how he genuinely loved to talk, laugh, and live life to the fullest.
