My story began in Bellville, TX, but raised in Sealy, TX. During my senior year of high school, I enrolled in the delayed entry program for the United States Army. After graduation, I completed basic training at Ft. Dix, NJ and advanced individual training at Ft. Eustis, VA. After completing my training, I had the honor of serving with some great brothers and sisters in a couple different units, the 4/11th ACR and the 4/3rd ACR. I defiantly am proud of my military service.
After my time in service, I started driving trucks in the oilfield, until the bottom fell out, which a lot of guys scurried around looking for ways to provide for their families. At this time, it led me to this great company that gave me the chance to find my place with this new family. Some of my brothers that I served time with in the oilfield, are also co-workers of mine at this company as well. I don’t see any of the guys I work with as co-workers, I see them as family. That’s the type of atmosphere that Mr. Ray Madden encourages us to follow. As long as I’ve been with Highway Haulers, they have been with Greatwide, which has been a good working partnership. It’s been an honor working for such a great company with great people and there’s so much of a story still to be written.
I am a father of 4 children (2 boys & 2 girls) and 2 grandchildren (1 granddaughter & 1 grandson) - they are my world. I would do whatever I have to for them. They are my reason waking each and every day and doing what I do.
A small passion of mine is photography. My oldest son participates in sports, so on the weekends during his meets, I am able to take pics of him and his teammates, which I totally enjoy doing. A lot of people get to see frozen moments in time that were not able to attend.
Thank you again for this honor. I am just a guy that goes to work just like everyone else to do what they can to provide whatever life they can for their family.
