B.J. spent most of his life working in the petroleum industry. His passions were working hard, spending time with his family, listening to country and gospel music and watching a good western movie. He loved going to the lake, fishing and spending time with his son listening and watching him play his guitar. Keeping family close to him was important. There is probably not a person he has met that wasn't touched by his respectful and kind heart. He was one of the kindest men anyone could ever meet. A true hero in the eyes of his family and he will be truly missed. We will see you again, DAD.
