He served in WWII as a Merchant Marine before partnering with associates at Armo Mills for many years. In the mid-60s, he joined Texas Feed and Fertilizer Control with Texas A&M University as an auditor, inspector and supervisor.
He retired after 28 years of dedicated service. He loved his work and never knew a stranger – he was so kind and confident.
