June attended school in the Sampson County District. Throughout his life, he worked
several local farmers. June, also known as the Clutch Man, was an active and
dedicated softball player with the Clinton Sluggers for several years. June was called
“Clutch Man” because the guys would put the bat in his hand for a needed hit during a
crucial time in the game…...and 9 out of 10 he came through with that needed HIT. He
gained many lasting friends during the years he played softball and through the years
just being June.
His favorite saying, “You won't bet nothing”. He joined Holly Grove Church at a very

Elveria Underwood. Pastor Underwood stepped in as his caretaker and helped him any
way she could.
