Truitt and I were working friend at Lane Wells Co. 2002 S Wayside in Houston 1958-1966. A fine gentleman and a Joy to be with. Unfortunanly I lost conact with him and Peggie as life moved on. A grand fellow and I’m sure a great family leader. God Bless you all.
Dear Akin Family
Truett gave me my first job out of college. I will always remember the interview and our lunch together. We spoke of college and the Truett told me that in college ‘you learn how to learn.’ I have used that quote many times since. He was always a fair and honest man and I thank him for taking a chance on me.
