Known as Jaybird on the C.B., he was an over-the-road trucker for nearly sixty years before retiring. Jaybird was also a farmer and loved to grow a garden, ride his tractor, fish, or just pass the time whittling. He was married to the former Joyce Fay Garrison for 64 years before her death earlier this year. He was a member of the Red Bay Holy Church of Christ.

Z L was a quite man with a friendly smile. I worked with him for 27 years and he was always a very pleasant man . You children can count him as a blessing. Sorry I didn't know of his passing until today.
