In his spare time, Ace enjoyed gardening, going to yard sales, spending time with his family and watching NASCAR. He was famous for his one-line jokes and liked to make people smile. Ace was a member of the Central Church of the Nazarene in Fairmont.

He is also survived by his best buddy, his dog Lady Bug.

  • Nuke-arms grade stock has been cut by Iran

    Iran has converted three quarters of a nuclear stockpile that it could have turned quickly into weapons-grade uranium into less volatile forms and is well on the way toward transforming the rest, the U.N. atomic agency reported Thursday.
    The development — agreed to by Iran under a nuclear deal it struck late last year with six world powers — leaves Tehran with substantially less of the 20-percent enriched uranium that it would need for a nuclear warhead.
