Wardie loved the Lord and his family very deeply. He was a very patriotic, simple man. PawPaw had a lot of integrity and worked hard for everything he had. He took pride in his garden and worked hard daily to try to make things perfect, including outsmarting squirrels from his well known tasty pecans. He enjoyed watching any ball game that was on TV, but he especially enjoyed watching the Braves and Auburn play. He was a blessing to all who knew him. www.millerfuneralhomeoxford.com Miller Funeral Home & Crematory Oxford, AL (256) 831-4611 A Brown Service Authorized Funeral Home.
