Jc was the life of the “party” he loved hard and loved big. His family meant everything to him. His smile would light up a room. Jc spent a lot of time overseas building power plants but was always there for his kids and family while he was away. He was a mechanical engineer. He played multiple instruments and the Trombone was his favorite. When he sang he had the voice of an angel and he loved to sing. He was always there for anyone and he would give you the shirt off his back. He wanted nothing but the best for everyone and he wanted everyone to be successful. He was a big guy with a big personality. He was truly the best. He loved piddling around and working on different projects welding stuff. He loved cooking and having big gatherings. He loved Tennessee and those beautiful mountains and the snow. He had a size 15 shoe and wore a size 23 wedding band. His hands were so big his friends called him “Meat Hook”. He was just a big ole teddy bear that just wanted to bring joy, happiness and love to everyone.
