It was certainly a blessing for my husband and myself to know June. We so enjoyed our conversations with this fine Christian. I remember one particular time when he came over to our house for Sunday lunch. Each person discussed adventures we had, particularly in the great outdoors. One of our favorite topics was fishing. I think we saw who could outdo the other with fish stories. What a delight he was. But what we loved best about June, was his being such a wonderful Christian and his knowledge of the scriptures. We will miss June. May God give his family comfort. Jack and Kala Shropshire

The Greatest Generation lost another good man. June was a gentleman and a Christian. He always had a smile and kind words even while playing bridge! My husband and I would get to church early, so we could sit by June and discuss some bridge hands played during the week. June will be missed and always remembered.

We were blessed to worship at Kings Ridge with June for several years while he lived here in Lubbock. His was always so pleasant and friendly. His knowledge and understanding of the Bible was remarkable. You didn't misspeak a scripture around June. We will miss him.

We were blessed to worship with June at Kings Ridge after he moved to Lubbock. Such a sweet and good man. His love for God’s word was evident to all of us and his love of reading was a pleasure to me. He apologized for even bringing up the subject of Ben Green books at the church building but turned me into a fan of his horse ‘trading’ stories. I shared WW2 books with him and he told me that one book in particular was the toughest he had ever read. He said, “I had to stop reading that and just cry for awhile.”
I’m glad he’s put away this worldly tent and taken on a spiritual body that will not hurt or age anymore.
