Upon graduation, “Nookie” moved to Emporia, Virginia to begin a career driving trucks. “Nookie went from the tractor to the truck. Driving trucks was Nookie’s passion. He drove trucks unto death. In “Nookie’s” spare time, he was a sunny shade mechanic that was always ready to give a helping hand and a smile with a pleasant conversation. Nookie said he was “the detail man in town.” He wore many hats and had a positive impact on the life of so many people. He was a loving father, grandfather, son, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin and friend. He was loved by many and will be greatly missed by all.
