Fondest memories of your days at Central:


My life since graduation:  
I started to Auburn in the fall after graduation studying Forestry.  Attended for 2 years and when my father got sick with cancer I came back home.  Joined the Army Reserves and was able to be back home to help care for my father.  I began work on an apprenticeship program at Ross Meehan Foundry.  After my father died, my family moved to Henagar, Alabama, to the family farm.  Married Gwen in 1967.  We have four children:  Julie, Brian, Nancy and Emily.  All are married and 3  live within 5 miles of us and the other one is in Mississippi.  We have nine grandchildren.  Enjoy them working with me on the farm.  I worked at Ross Meehan for 14 1/2 years.  It closed and I worked at Wheland Foundry for 19 1/2 years.  I now work at DeKalb Regional Medical Center in Ft. Payne, Alabama.  I have been there 6 1/2 years.  I work in maintenance and was honored to be Employee of the Year in 2006.  I enjoy our farm where we raise some cattle, have some horses and mules for the kids to enjoy.  We garden and are active in church where I teach the men's class each Sunday.
