I was born in Mt. Pleasant, Texas, in “nineteen hundred and none of your business” and attended school in the small oil field town of Talco, Texas. My dad worked for Magnolia Petroleum Company (now, Exxon Mobil), and my mom was an English teacher. Along with one sister, we lived on 60+ acres of land where we raised a few head of cows.
My wife, Charlotte, and I are “married with children” – Stephen, Jessica, and Joel. We have six grandchildren – Seth, Austin, Braden and Shelby (twins), and Cody and Riley (twins).
