I received from Baylor University a BS degree with a major in biology and a minor in geology. In the United States Air Force, I was as a military public health specialist.
After the Air Force, I worked as a city health inspector in of Beaumont, Texas. Later, I was employed by the Texas Department of Health. First working in the Product Safety Division, and then transferring to Radiation Control, I retired as the Radiation Control Program Manager for the Dallas/Fort Worth region.
I have been married to the same wonderful lady for forty 48 years. We have two children and four grandchildren.
I have had articles published in the Grand Forks Air Force Base news paper, The North Texas Health Physicist news letter, the Texas Gun Collector's magazine and the Dallas Arms Collector's News.
My current interests are my family, reading, writing, and collecting antique firearms.
The wife and I live live in Texas.
