Our Daddy was a “Jack” of all trades. He worked on the New River Gorge Bridge in the earlier stages where he was an electrician in the coal mines. His favorite role was as a truck driver of any and every type of truck out there. From his white Freightliner to his dump trucks hauling coal, dirt, gravel and rocks, he loved every minute.
Jackie was the business owner of JB Excavating and Landscaping and CMS Mail Contractors hauling U.S. mail. He was also an exceptional welder and mechanic. Jackie, Dad, our Papaw, loved to work, but he loved to work even harder to provide for the family he built.
Jackie was an avid Nascar fan of the late Dale Earnhardt, Sr. #3. He loved his Harley Davidson and enjoyed going to bike shows around the country where he won several awards. In his retirement years, his interest was rebuilding his 1950 Chevrolet. He loved his classic country music and gospel hymns until the day he was called home.
