He attended Greenville County Schools and taught himself many skills over the years that allowed him to be “the Jack of All trades”.

Man O Man, I don't know where to start or what to say. I know I'm missing you Putt. I will no longer get to celebrate our birthday (May21st) like we been doing the last 5 years. You cutting up and calling me "LiL Bit". Your passing have left me in shock and hurtful. I'm praying for the Phelps Family and all your dear and close friends as well. RIH Putt!
