My memories of J.R. are mainly of his time as a student at Oak Hill High School . He was a cheerful presence in class .. always smiling and happy as he was studying English.

In later years when I would see him in town, he remained the same.. cheerful, respectful, and always exhibiting his
Christianity. I am so sorry that he is gone, and offer my deepest sympathy to members of his family.
