He inherited a rich legacy of faith, and character from them and was taught the value of Godly living. He served diligently as a member of the choir, the usher board, and the youth ministry. At a young age, he accepted Jesus Christ as his personal savior. And, although, at times he struggled in his commitment to his faith, his love for Christ was evident in his conversations as well as in the manner in which he carried himself. He constantly expressed that his ultimate goal was to make heaven his home!
