Doodle was the consummate bass angler. He represented our B.A.S.S. Nation of West Virginia members and the Great State of West Virginia while earning his way to multiple State Teams and advanced to compete at multiple B.A.S.S. Nation Championships in both Boater and Non-Boater Divisions. He most recently & proudly represented us as the Southeast Region Champion (Boater Division) @ the 2021 B.A.S.S. Nation Championship on the Ouachita River in Monroe, LA. More importantly, Doodle was a good man who found faith in the Good Lord during his journey. I'm thankful to have counted him as a friend. He'll be sorely missed. Gloria & family, Praying for comfort and strength for you. Ken Hackworth President, B.A.S.S. Nation of West Virginia

Doodle was such a great sportsman and kind man. He was also a hard working man and loved his family. Several years ago I was fishing a bass tournament at East Lynn and a nasty thunderstorm started with heavy rains. I was fishing alone and did not have rain coat. I saw Doodle motoring out of the creek and he stopped to chat for a second. He asked if I was putting rain gear on, told him I didn’t bring it. He took the time to dig an extra rain jacket out of his boat and hand it to me, just told me to get it back to him when I could, then he motored off. I did, but that was a great act of kindness. It was a privilege to know him and his wonderful wife Gloria. Praying for your families peace in this time.

I've known Doodle all our lives. What I will remember about him is his quick wit. He was the kind of neighbor that would come and clear off a driveway without expecting anything in return. I will remember the 4th of July parties he and Gloria would have for the neighborhood and the birthday parties I've went too through the years. Rest in Peace dear friend. Thoughts and prayers are with the family.
