He attended Purchase Community Church, owned and operated a backhoe for 40 years before his health would not allow him to continue. R.C. loved to deer hunt, hog hunt, squirrel hunt and to fish. R.C. had border collies he trained, which some were award- winning dogs. He participated in sheep dog trials which he enjoyed very much.
