Punky was an avid outdoorsman. He was a member of the Scott County Coon Hunters Association. He could always be found hunting, fishing or just driving the backroads. Punky grew up in Waldron in and around Lee's Service Station and Tire Shop working with his dad helping the people of his community.

Punky spent over 20 years of dedicated service in helping to keep the Waldron Country Club in top shape. He could be found on a mower, tractor or doing whatever need be on the grounds. With a big smile and even bigger personality, Punky was loved by all.
