While stationed in Japan, “Sarge” married his lovely wife, Yoneko, who remained by his side for more than 50 years. Known for his love of life and sense of humor, Sarge could always light up any room with his colorful phrases and twinkling eyes. His USMC mentality remained his trademark, as Sarge would also take command of any event, including how to prepare the food…another favorite hobby. His love was his family, his friends, cooking, hunting, The Corps and football. “Sarge” is survived by his beautiful wife, Yoneko and devoted daughter Anita Holsapple of Los Angeles, his sisters, Marguerite Williams of Union Grove, AL, JoAnn Fossett and Deborah Moon of Guntersville, AL, along with countless nieces and nephews.
