On behave of my mother, (his sister) Corine Payne, our thoughts are with his family on this sad occasion. My mother loved him dearly. I never knew my uncle well but the few times I was lucky enough to visit with him and aunt Rosie were loving and unforgettable. He will always remain close in my heart.
