Born in Elmore County, Alabama near Rock Springs community. I attended school at Rock Springs and Tallassee Alabama. I served in the U S Army for three years during the cold war era. I acquired my first-class Radiotelephone license in 1965 and was hired by Delta Airlines communications dept. I worked as an Avionics Mechanic until my retirement.

Now that you have had a little time to try WikiTree, there are a few more features you may find useful.
Ideas on what to include in a profile can be found in Styles and Standards, including some tips on writing biographies.
If you need to describe an event, an heirloom or a location relevant to your research, you may like to learn about Free Space Profiles.
Lastly, sometimes you'll run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving those unfortunate situations.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask via my profile page.
