Santies confessed his love for Christ at an early age. He was a member of Pilgrim Church while growing up and joined the Church of the Living God while in his 30’s he recently returned to Pilgrim Church where he felt at home listening to the sermons of Pastor Rickey Parks.
Santies worked at various factories in the Champaign-Urbana area throughout his life until he could no longer work due to health issues. He was a self-proclaimed handy man, auto mechanic and anything else that his friends and family needed him to be. He had so many talents but never realized his full potential but always had a strong love for God and truly loved his family and friends!
Santies enjoyed watching sports, socializing with his friends and listening to all kinds of music. He loved playing basketball and baseball while in High School and always talked about those days with fond memories. He had mentioned that he could not wait until this COVID -19 Shelter in place order was over so he could go back to church, but God knew best and brought him home!
