Siblings include Delinda Givens (sister) and Tommy Stivers (brother).A man of great wisdom and wit, he loved God, all people, golf, UK sports, his flower garden, studying history (especially Civil War and British), and was a voracious reader. “Well done, good and faithful servant!” – Matt 25:28.A special thanks to the personnel at UK Chandler Medical Center and Markey Cancer Research Center who lovingly cared for him.
