He will be missed greatly by his many nieces and nephews, Each having fond memories of their Uncle JD. He showed love and kindness to each one of them.

JD and Sharon moved to Cleburne 35 years ago. JD has been a Church of Christ minister for many years, sharing the love of God with people through teaching and through his kindness, gentleness, and unconditional love.

He enjoyed his time as owner of several full service stations, his latest being Gasoline Alley in Cleburne. He enjoyed meeting, serving, and visiting, with his many friends and customers. He later worked for the City of Cleburne, retiring from there in 2008.
His family and friends have been left with great memories! One, of course, would be his love of Chrysler products, and he loved to tell stories about racing his ‘64 Plymouth Sport Fury with a 383 Police Interceptor!

He loved history, and enjoyed talking about his time in the US Navy. He was always telling a dad joke, or some sort of silly riddle! Just one of his dad jokes for you to think about…If a rooster lays an egg on the peak of a roof, will the egg roll down the left or the right?

JD loved his coffee! Speaking of coffee, JD was a great host, and within minutes of being in their home, he’d be offering you a cup of coffee. He just loved people.

If you ever had the privilege of taking a short drive, or a long trip, with JD and Sharon, you knew what song he’d be singing "On the Road Again" and now, he has reached his ultimate destination!

JD loved popcorn, and he loved his peanut butter and Karo syrup!
He loved his family deeply.
He loved preaching,
But most of all, he loved GOD. He spent many years teaching God’s Word, and lived a life that left a great legacy for those he loved.
As he so often said to the young men of the family, we now say to him.. JD, you were truly a gentleman, a scholar, and a prince among men.
In the words of Papa John… Bye for now.
