    I would love to hear some of those Pee Wee stories some day. We all loved him so. He was one of a kind, tough as God makes ’em, also so gentle, friendly and welcoming. I had no idea anyone ever called Pee Wee “tubby,” even a Drill Sgt.
    God, I miss him. So long Pee Wee.

    Peewee was a one of a kind individual, when they made him the mold was broken and thrown out. He took things as they came, at times he was tough when it was required and the rest of the time he was a gentle man caring for everyone around him.

    I grew up with him, we became best of friends and did just about anything you can imagine doing in a small town. After spending a night out with Shaylor Copeland, Larry Marine, and Joe Moore who had been discharged from the Marines shortly before that night, we decided to join the Marine Corps ourselves. When I went to pick up Peewee the next morning so we could go to Weatherford to join, he told me I was crazy to go back home, but I was not taking no for an answer because we had promised to do so. After we arrived at Parris Island MCRD I started having second thoughts.

    I think what Darla said was funny, about Peewee holding the barn door open. While we were in boot camp our drill instructors thought Peewee needed to lose some weight so they made him hold the door open to the mess hall so our platoon could enter and he would be the last one in and have the least amount of time to eat. Amazing how I can still hear the drill instructor yell out “let them in tubby ” and Peewee would run to open the door so we could march in.

    I will truly miss him. There are so many things I could tell about what we did together but it would take too long to do so here.

    I am so very sorry for your loss. I didn’t know him but know the family. Again, I am so sorry for the pain you must endure. May he rest in Peace. Obviously he has more to protect and serve in Heaven. GOD be with you all

    He always treated me like family, not an ex or just someone who came around with his brother. He never had anything but a smile when no one else did. A great man to me and i will think of him often.I love you all and know the hurt in your hearts. but he will be holding the barn door open as we all enter heaven someday…. My prayers are with you all….Love ya Darla
