Buried at Moody's. "A precious one from us has cone, A voice we love is stilled, A place is vacant in our home, That never can be filled". Earlene told me that he never was married, and died at Guntersville lake fishing. It seems that when he returned to the bank to tie up his boat , he reached up to catch a light pole. The electrical connections were faulty and not grounded. He was killed by the faulty electrical lamp wire.
