He was a 1962 graduate of Washington & Lee High School, a Vietnam Veteran serving in the Tet Offensive in 1968, a member and past master of the Westmoreland Lodge 212 Ancient Free & Accepted Masons. He retired from N.S.W.C, Dahlgren VA. in 2010 after 30 years. His favorite times were with his family, grandchildren, and doing church work. His hobby was cars, especially mustangs.

(Bobby) Minor (Dorethia) and Thomas Larry Minor (Janis); brother-in-law John Everett Bryant (Linda); a host of nephews, nieces, and friends including best friends Robert Turner and Carrol “Whitey” White.
The service will be held at 2 p.m., Monday, December 2, 2019 at Carmel United Methodist Church with the Rev. Rebecca L. Minor officiating. The family will receive friends for one hour prior to the service time, followed by a Masonic Service. Interment will follow in the Carmel UMC Cemetery.
Pallbearers are Charles William Minor, David Minor, J. B. Bryant, Robert Turner Jr., Jamie Brown, and Richard Lahey.

Yvonne & Family, Durwood took me on many taxi trips around the base. I always looked forward to those trips, because once we discovered he had worked for my Grandfather at the Hague VDOT and knew my Dad, there was lots to chat about. My sincere condolences and sympathy to you all. Gina Mallory Tompkins
