His beloved cat Brooklyn and greyhounds Peaches and Meg-o Ingram had a special place in his heart.
He loved the staff and customers of Johnny K’s restaurant in Indian Trail, world history, current events, traveling the world and was very devoted to his family and friends. He hated peaches, the fruit, and tolerated Peaches, the dog. He had a great sense of humor and loved food from the 1950’s especially tomato aspic and anything he could augment with Texas Pete (from Winston-Salem, mind you). He was very proud of the Major Awards given to him in December 2011 by Roscoe and Sara Wagoner and Howard and Mary Dare Holderness.
His friends and family treasure the goodness, integrity, honor and good humor he projected.
