    To a great man and a wonderful family:
    I’m sorry for your loss. Know that your father (my second dad) has always been an inspiration to me. I thank God for you and I am glad you ran your race without fail, without waiver.

    Antonio "Tony" Johnson says

    You cannot say enough about this man. He was a Korean War veteran, a mathematician, a devoted/inspirational teacher, a loving husband and father. He gave his love and devotion to God, to his church and pastor, as well as his fellow deacons and members of his church. More importantly he along with Ms. Butts helped so many young people and homeless people at the New Hope Community Center. Also there are so many successful people with great careers thanks to his dedication to education, This includes tutoring at all grades and age levels. A great loss to his own family, his church and community..
