Junior was a veteran and served in the Navy and Air Force.  After his duty to serve, he returned home to work with his dad.  In 1968, Junior gave his life to our Lord and Savior.  In the early 1970s Junior started and owned his own company, Quick’s Termite and Pest Control. Most people came to know Junior as the Bug Man.

1972 began a new chapter in his life and a new era for Southern gospel music as he organized the Victory Aires Quartet.

Ephesians 2: 8-9

For by grace are we saved through faith; and not of yourselves, it is a gift of God.  Not of works, lest any man should boast.
