Daddy’s laugh was contagious. He would tell stories and laugh so hard he would cry. He never met a stranger and was always ready to tell a tale, with his little grin and a twinkle in his eye. He had a very strong work ethic. He owned a Mobile Service Station in Breckenridge, worked as a surveyor for Tidelands in Breckenridge, owned and operated C & G Foods with his wife, Carla, in Gordon TX. However, he will always been remembered by his family and friends as a Butcher.
