He is survived by his mother, Charlene Wilson and husband, Eris; son, Cole Padgett; brother, Mike Padgett and wife, Toni; two sisters, Lisa Douglas and Karen Russell and husband, Michael; mother of his child, Rita Wooten; as well as a host of nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will be 2:00 P.M. Sunday, December 17, 2023 at Marianna Chapel Funeral Home with Reverend Ronnie Wright and Dr. Greg Lambe officiating.

The family will receive friends from 1:30 P.M. to 2:00 P.M., prior to the service, at Marianna Chapel Funeral Home.
