As kids, he was the one that kept everyone in line at the farm amongst all the brothers.
Mr. Estes is survived by his beloved wife Sylvia “Jean” Honeycutt Estes; brothers, Edward “Shorty” Lee Estes, Hubert Levan Estes (Earlene), Ernest Jackson Estes (Ginger) and Clifford Estes (Sharon); and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family.
He was preceded in death by a brother, Donnie Ray Estes.
