He loved his work as a contractor and farmer and rancher, which began before daylight and ended after dark every day. He loved his family and always made sure they were taken care of.
His granddaughter, Martha Briley and her husband Bo want to say a special Thank You to the following for all the help and care they provided for J.D. during his time in their home: Veterans Administration, Visiting Angels, Teresa Alley, Concho Valley Home Health and Hospice of San Angelo.
