Fever was full of energy, fun conversation and was often the life of the party. He was well-known for taking pictures in and around the Dothan area creating smiles no mater where he went.
His passion for motorcycles was contagious and even transferred to his children and grandchildren.

He would have intense conversations and debates with anyone during the games, no matter what time of the day or night it was. But at the end of the day, he was a proud and daunting grandfather and great-grandfather walking the football stadiums, baseball fields and basketball courts talking about Jig, Bookie “Ra-darius” as they played these sports.
