JR was always an incredible presence at Gibbons. Always the beautiful smile as we see in his picture. Reading the tributes from family, co workers and so many lives JR touched, does not surprise me at all. His personality was positive. He will be missed

Anna saddened to hear of JR's death. We worked on many projects together while he was in The Kiwanis Club of Western Catawba County. I enjoyed our time and fellowship.
