Comments

Eva and I were in education for 40+ years. She taught biology and special education and was a Special Education Director. She worked for the Texas Education Agency as a Special Programs Monitor. I was a science and social studies teacher/coach, principal and superintendent. After retiring from education I have been working in pipeline construction and raising cattle. Eva passed away in 2015. I recently remarried Mary Lara.

What states and/or countries have you lived in?

I have always lived in Texas. Mostly in Southeast Texas (Polk and Chambers Counties). I did live for a short time in the Panhandle and Northeast Texas.
I moved to the Mabank-Canton area (Phlaba) after Eva passed away.

If you could build a second home anywhere, where would it be?

Cloudcroft, New Mexicove

Do you still see/talk to/hang out with other Delta Sig brothers? Who?

I don't communicate with my Brothers very often. Dick Cooper and I worked together for several years.

I want to travel to Alaska.

Cool things you've done?

Raised two great children.

Yes, in Carter's Pasture and the Paper-Mill Pasture located in th Piney Creek and Neches River Bottom while hunting. It was during a rainstorm in October of 1972.
