The funeral will be held at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, June 28, 2022, at Bellefounte Baptist Church, with the Pastor Lake Walker officiating.

The interment will follow at Tasso United Methodist Church Cemetery, with Josh McGuire, Chad Haun, Brandon Cissom, Logan Haynes, Kristian Reeves, Jesse Gainer and Kerry Speth serving as pallbearers.

His family will receive friends from noon to 2 p.m. on Tuesday at the church prior to the service.
