In his younger years, his family moved around the southeast where he and his brother fished and hunted many a summer day. They sailed on Biscayne Bay and searched for arrowheads in the fields around Auburn. He served as a Captain in the Air Force and graduated in engineering from Auburn University. He was president of the ATO fraternity.
His father moved the family engineering business to Fairhope in 1957. He was a civil engineer during Baldwin County’s rapid growth and was responsible for the design of many engineering projects such as, water and sewer systems, the W. C. Majors Football Stadium and the Fairhope Municipal Pier.
Beyond his engineering accomplishments he shared his love with all. He excelled as an artist and gave away many of his paintings for all to enjoy. He loved to travel with friends and had many adventures all over the world, but he always loved to come home and sit in his front yard, a place he called Eden.
He was a life long Episcopalian at St. James and St. Pauls Episcopal Church, where he was an active member of each. He was a member of the Fairhope Rotary.
A life well-lived, his influence in the growth of Baldwin County, his love for family, art, and his church. The ripple effect of this love will never die.
