Chubby was an easygoing, simple, loving, caring brother and uncle. If you needed to talk to him, he would always listen. Chubby took life in stride, but his biggest joy was spending time with his nieces and nephews at the family cookouts, holiday gatherings and Ken-Gar community events. At any time, Chubby would always remind them of their place, telling them, "This is grown folks talking, and children go to their room."
Chubby enjoyed laughing, telling jokes, cooking, playing cards, going to casinos, and watching his favorite football team, the San Francisco 49ers. He also loved listening to gospel music on Sunday, cooking his special fried eggs "hot sauce and all" and playing Dominos! When he played Dominos and won, he'd ask you, "Who's your Daddy!
