He drove in the upper Northern states to the East and West Coasts. One trip he was coming into Canada from the states when the border patrol asked him where he was coming from? He replied, “Houston,” as if everyone should know it was in Texas. He worked in the oilfield in Louisiana and Texas for over 30 years retiring after he had a stroke in 2018. He loved working at A-1 Towing and crazy or not, “No one” ever got upset or treated him mean.
