The epitaph on his grave reads:

“He touched the soul of the world by allowing his God-given ‘golden voice’ to be used in a public way. Yet the recognition he received on earth has been exceeded in a very private way. Now, his faith has allowed him to rank among the best in the choir above. Leaving each of us with the comfort of his songs, the presence of his memory and the anticipation of being with him in his ‘little spot in heaven’ for eternity.”
