Also surviving him are his cousins: Sheena (Elton Fowlkes) whom he considered to be his sister, Elizabeth Stone, Charmaine Kirby, Sue and Leamon Pierce, Mary Gray, Gordon Gray, Jeff (Sharon) Boatwright, along with many other cousins.

He had many special friends whom he considered his family: Elizabeth Lloyd, Dora Robinson, Sheree Bowen, Sue and Eugene Wright and family; his Godbrother: Dr. Curtis Wright; Ellen (Jake) Mabry and family, Sherri Brown and family including Zareyea Hampton (his babydoll), Renee Darden, John Dickey, Terri Tevis and Denise Hampton and family.
