He joined the army at 17 and proudly served his country for 22 years, including one tour in Vietnam and two in Korea, earning two bronze stars and numerous other commendations. He managed the food service cafeteria for the army in Ft. McClellan, AL before and after retiring, and then he worked for 15 years as a general contractor in Augusta, GA.

He is survived by his two sisters, Norma Stevens and Willodean Loy; his brother, Stanley Ashcraft; his five children, Patricia Rohr (Don), Donna Jennings (Burt), Connie Halstead (Ken), Sandra Baker, and David Roberts (Alyssa); as well as numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
