He enjoyed watching the Atlanta Braves baseball games with his loving and caring sister, Roslyn (Ann) and brother Robert Charles. He got so much enjoyment from just sitting on his front porch "chatting" it up with his nieces, nephews and friends about life. He had a direct line t this brother Lawrence (Tim) when it regarded anything going on in the city near and around his neighborhood which created an even special bond between the two.
