Poochie accepted Christ at an early age and was baptized at Little Zion Baptist Church in Beaumont TX, under the Pastorship of Rev. Clifton Smith. Poochie lived his entire life in Beaumont, TX. Poochie’s education was obtained at Martin Elementary, Lincoln Jr High, and Charlton Pollard High schools. Poochie will be missed for many things, but especially his early morning phone calls on every holiday and everyone’s Birthday and when the Dallas Cowboys won. He was a loving person and never met a stranger. He united with under Pastor. Poochie sang in the choir and had a beautiful Baritone and Tenor Voice. He was the life of the party and loved to dance with anyone who’d dance with him; or he simply danced alone just for fun. His favorite pastime was watching sports and westerns.
He was preceded in death by his parents, one sister, and five.
