I worked with Dooley when he was a cutter a Ceres. I remember when a good song would come on the radio, he would get up from his machine & dance. He cracked us up with that! I'm so sorry for your loss & will keep the family lifted in prayer.

My condolences to the Griggs family and a heartfelt condolence to Trina Porter, Dooley and I were friends going back over 20 years we shared many laughs and an abundance of small talk. Nobody could keep my trucks cleaner than my man Dooley! My fondest memory is me going behind him cleaning my windows, and him saying I'm not doing your windows anymore and throwing the paper at me, so before long when I pulled up he would just tell me here are the supplies wash it yourself! May you Rest in Peace my good brother.
