Went through the Midfield system until I moved during my 9th grade year. Moved to the Bessemer area and finished at Bessemer Academy where I met the love of my life; Nancy. We still live in Hueytown and she raised three daughters and me.lol This August will be 29 years of marriage. I worked 26 years for Jim Walter Resources in the coal business and retired in 2006. I now work for the State of Alabama as a mine inspector. Still have to go underground but not nearly as much. Finally got all three daughters through college, with one getting married this past summer.(on my dime). Needless to say we are BROKE but happy. Life has been a blast and I have to say that God has blessed me far more than I ever deserved.
