On October 10,2013 we lost him to lung and liver cancer. His name was Troy (TL) Jones. You may remember him he was the one who sold the popguns and rubber ban guns. We would sale at least 300 guns that weekend. My daddy never met a person he didn't like. He made so many friends there. Thanks for giving my daddy a reason to live all those yrs.
