He was a lineman working for Barnett Southern in Georgia and was of the Baptist faith. He accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior at an early age. He had a huge heart and would help others’ without wanting any recognition. He had a bond with his brother and sister like no other. They all loved to go ATV riding in the mountains or in his jeep. He was an avid boater and loved anything involving the water, which he got from his mother. Eli was free spirited and marched to the beat of his own drum. He loved to travel. He had visited many places in his young life and been on several adventures. Hawaii was one of his favorite trips. He considered himself the best uncle in the world, spoiling his little nephews.
