Quinton, affectionately known as “Shoe,” was well known for his passion and greatness for playing football. “Shoe” attended both Hillcrest and Newberry High School, where he played sports and had a special love for football. He loved singing and cooking with family and friends. At an early age, he became employed with Wise BBQ and later with Kraft Heinz and Georgia Pacific.
