“Other then a love for his family JR enjoyed racing his car, it was his pride and joy. JR was such a great man, always helping others. We talked before he passed, he didn’t want to leave this world due to his wife and children. He was a big hearted man and he wanted to watch his kids grow up but he knew he wasn’t gonna be able to,” Charlie Vaughn (Friend)
Smokey’s thoughts and prayers go out the family as they say good bye to a husbend, father and friend.
