He was remembered as ambassador for the Christian faith. After graduating from Louisiana College, he attended Louisiana Baptist Theological Seminary in New Orleans. He then began a path of ministry that eventually led him to Hebron Baptist Church (1955-2014) and Summerfield Baptist Church (1970-2016). He was recognized by the Louisiana Baptist Convention as the longest-tenured pastor in a Louisiana Southern Baptist Church. He would serve at Hebron Baptist Church for a total of 58 years.
