He was just a poor farm boy who had to quit school after the 8th grade so he could work & help support his parents. He went on to work and retire from Panhandle Eastern Pipeline, where he was able to get his GED, and then went on and took some college classes.

He was pretty proud of his first great-grandson!
Grandpa Brown & Carter
Carter had colic & I remember Dad rocking him, singing "Oh My Darling Clementine", and soothing Carter to sleep
This was Dad's last trip to our house...he knew he would never be back. He told me so when I let him out at the airport & it about broke my heart.
