His spare time was spent building tree houses, bird houses and other structures of a smaller scale. He was also a longtime member of First United Methodist Church and much loved member of the Wesley Men’s Bible Class. Survivors include a daughter, Martha M. Brock of Charlotte; 4 grandchildren, Brian Brock of Charlotte, Matthew Brock (Lauren) of Mooresville, Kristy Ratliff Davis and Ashley Ratliff both of Wadesboro; 5 great-grandchildren, Jase Ratliff, Liam Davis, Sadie Brock, Maevyn Hill and Hayes Brock.
