After graduation, I continued working at East Point Glass Company. In June of 1960, I married Kate Yates from Bowdon, Georgia.  In 1961, we moved back to the farm in Alabama began producing eggs and beef cattle.  From 1962 to 1968 I was Justice of the Peace. In 1967 I sold the egg business and went to work with the State of Alabama Department of Agriculture for the next 30 years. 

I remained in the cattle business until 1997 my son took over when I retired, since then we traveled to Canada, Mexico and all the states several times, except we haven’t made it to Alaska.
