High School Graduation
Undated -- 1950s?
He's seen a lot of changes in his lifetime! He went to school with his siblings in a wagon pulled by a horse. His circuit riding minister father bought the first Model T in the county to make going between charges easier. He worked his way through the last year in high school, all of college and seminary. To pay his way, he was a migrant worker in the summers, harvesting crops and saving his money for the next school year.
He served churches in Ohio, Illinois, Missouri and Utah before taking early retirement because of a massive stroke.
Dad race-walked "just for fun" and just recently hung up his racing shoes. It wasn't nearly as much fun when he wasn't winning! The senior division has too broad of a range, from 65 on up -- he can't compete with them! But he was named Jefferson County Racewalker of the Month while he was competing.
Here's to the man with a wicked sense of humor, who's never given up.
