He was a bright kid that had many ideas of what he desired to be when he got older which included a firefighter, policeman, racecar driver, wrestler, rapper, and American Indian. A.J. definitely loved the ladies and absolutely loved The Dukes of Hazzard. He was Junior Chief of the Swainsboro Raceway Safety Crew and had a huge key collection. A.J. was a member of Faith Christian Assembly where he was baptized on June 2, 2019, and was active in the youth group.
