Mrs Garner, sorry to hear about the passing of a very fine gentleman and a wonderful coach. The Simsboro High School boys basketball and baseball teams thought he left us way too soon. It was Ruston High School's gain. He was a good teacher of math and an outstanding coach. I can't remember him ever getting mad at any of his players or officials. Thanks to him for his life of teaching character. Even though I have lived in TN almost 45 years, those SHS days are still cherished. I know my brother Jerry would amen this note.

Denny, your mom and your brother, So sorry to hear of your dad's passing. When I was at Tech and going to Temple and I can remember your dad and he always had a smile on his face. He always spoke and always seemed to recognize people. As a teacher and a coach he has influence a lot of students and helped them to achieve what they wanted to do.

You were always so special to us, "younger" cousins. I recall being at the wedding so many years ago. When your ball teams played against Uncle Elton's it was always hard knowing which one to holler for. I will miss that sweet smile of yours. Denmon you fought a long hard battle at the end and are the winner!! My thoughts and prayers to the family. I will miss you and look forward to the day when that big family circle will be complete again.
