At an early age, he joined the Greater Young Zion Baptist Church in Augusta, Georgia and was baptized by his father who was the pastor of the church.

He received a B.A. degree from Augusta State College (now Georgia Regents University) in 1971. He was then employed with the South Carolina Department of Vocational Rehabilitation and Aiken Technical College. He was also a free-lance writer and for a number of years, wrote columns for weekly newspapers in Augusta and Aiken. He was able to achieve and succeed in spite of his physical challenges. He received special recognition for his achievements from the Columbia Section of the National Council of Negro Women.
He is predeceased by his twin brother, Cyrus. His survivors are brothers Lafayette (Easter), Greenwood, South Carolina; Alvin (Marilyn), Stone Mountain, Georgia, and Dennis (Patricia), Aiken, South Carolina.
