Interment will follow at Roselawn Memorial Gardens where Sam Vance, Reggie Lambright, Sr., Mac Ruble, Connie Cline, Larry Synam, and George Ball will serve as pallbearers.

The family will receive friends from 10:00 AM until the time of service at the church. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Tazewell Young Life Ministry, P.O.
