Whereas, he graduated in 1976 from Wade Hampton High School in Hampton, South Carolina; and
Whereas, he was honorably discharged from the United States Army in 1979 after serving as a military policeman; and
Whereas, he continued to serve his country as a member of the United States Army Reserves until his death; and
Whereas, he was a 1982 graduate of Beaufort Technical College; and
