Tafola was known to some as a legend, hero, and true example of Cougar pride on his Ansbach Germany football, track and wrestling teams, as well as respected for his martial arts skills. Tafola Greenhill was a true friend. If he loved you, there was no boundaries or borders. If he enjoyed conversations with you, they never ended. He found enjoyment working on anything to do with technology. He loved his music and binge watching movies. Anything but horror movies that is. He was a member of Bethel Baptist Church in Thomson Georgia. His life devoted scripture was: “Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all ways acknowledge Him and he shall make your paths straight”. Proverbs 3: 5-7
