Later, he moved to Queens, New York where he garnered an honest work ethic. Cornelius returned to Andrews, South Carolina, where he displayed his kind and humorous ways. He attended the Andrews Seventh Day Adventist Church and his favorite biblical text was Psalm 23. He loved his family dearly and will be missed by all who knew him affectionately as "Buster".
