At an early age Wade Sr., commonly known as Jake, had a liking to the career of driving trucks. At the age of 21, he obtained his Commerical Driver's License and spent over 30 years in the trucking profession. He received his trucking handle of "CuddaJuga" while on the open road where he had many of his life experiences after reaching adulthood. He was a devoted son and brother and navigated through life with a smile, many jokes, and kind words. When you think of someone who could make a "dog laugh" that was Uncle Jake. Most of those that knew him would say that he was a kind-hearted individual. As a young father, he was imperfect but later sought redemption with his children by studying the word of God and devoting his life to them, and being a good person. It seems that everyone had their own personal relationship with Wade Sr., but ultimately, we would all agree that he was one of a kind. We will all miss your laugh, your stories, your kind words, and your jokes.
Wade Sr., leaves a legacy of hard work, kindness, and laughter. He would often quote passages from the 23 Psalms and believed in forgiveness and mercy for others.
