He was of the Baptist faith and a member of Mt. Tabor Missionary Baptist Church.

He earned his B.S. and Masters degrees in Education and was employed as a teacher for the Jackson County Public School System.  He taught at Marianna Middle School for many years before retiring.

Precious memories will linger with one daughter, Refronia Nicole Long (Derrick) of Baltimore, Maryland; three grandchildren, Earl Griffin of Marianna, Florida, Devon and Alannah Jones both of Baltimore, Maryland; step-son, Eric Mann and children of Marianna, Florida; two sisters-in-law, Lucy Tabb of Marianna, Florida and Eotree McClain of  Miami, Florida; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.

A homegoing celebration will be held Saturday, April 14th at 11a.m. at Mt. Tabor Missionary Baptist Church with Pastor Dwingt Cockerham, Sr. officiating.  Interment will follow in the church cemetery with arrangements entrusted to the caring staff at Peoples Funeral Home of Marianna, Florida.

The remains will lie-in-repose for one hour prior to the 11a.m. funeral time on Saturday at Mt. Tabor.
