RJ was a,” good ol’ corn fed country boy who had zero filter.” He never met a stranger and if He did, He would happily give them the shirt off his back. Every job needs a supervisor and RJ was keen on self-appointing himself for that position. One of his most enjoyable hobbies was race cars, having past experience working on them and racing them fueled his love for them. RJ had a down to earth nature and was an all-around good guy. If you knew RJ, it was apparent that he was always ready to cut up and if you were spending any time with Him, you should always be ready to eat whether you want to or not.
