    dedicated father to four children, and a remarkable grandfather to three grandsons.
    Affectionately known to some as Colonel Hooker, he worked for over thirty years in the
    Louisiana Dept. of Corrections and as a part-time officer with the City of DeQuincy Police.
    Colonel Hooker served as a musician, leader of the Royal Knights, geared to mentor the
