He then made his dream come true by starting his own company, Salvage and Building Materials, in 1988 in Clinton, Tennessee.  

He married his high school sweetheart and they lived happily together for 63 years.  

He liked nothing better than telling people about his beautiful wife, whom he married two days after his 19th birthday. His eyes would sparkle when he spoke of her.

After the war, he graduated from ETSU just before the birth of his third daughter, who was born on his birthday.  

Although the last years of his life were marked with pain, he rarely complained and would say that each day was “the best day ever.” 

He had many friends and will be remembered by how much he loved his wife, his family, his friends and his company, and how he worked to make his dreams come true.
