After Dad graduated High School in Birmingham, he went to Auburn University and graduated with a degree in electrical engineering. During college Dad met Janet Douthit, fell in love and they married. Dad took a job with Union Carbide which began a series of transfers, typical of many in the engineering profession. They took a temporary position in Jacksonville Florida, which lasted four months. Next Dad was transferred to Huntsville, Alabama. Then to New Jersey, about 40 miles from New York City. The whole family enjoyed taking occasional trips to New York. After two years there, the family moved to Buffalo, New York, where they experienced snow on a whole different level. Finally, Dad ended up in Deer Park, Texas, still working for Union Carbide. They resided in Deer Park for almost 50 years.

Dad and Mom started a new adventure when Dad accepted a job in Saudi Arabia with ARAMCO, where they both lived for seven years. Next, they lived and worked on the Island of Curacao, working for Royal Dutch Shell for two years. Then back home to Deer Park. Dad worked for Flour Engineering in Houston until he finally retired in 2015. He spent his Golden year with his wife Janet until she passed November of 2023.
