I first worked with Curly at Trading House Creek unit 2 in 1971. I was a helper working my first power plant. We instantly became friends. He taught me a lot. On that job and others. Curly and I worked numerous jobs in numerous states over the years. He was an optimist if there ever was one. He always had something going on the side. Way too many different things to list here. He and I were going to get rich bottle feeding baby bulls from a diary herd when we were building one of the Monticello units near Mount Pleasant Texas. Needless to say we didn't get rich. I really enjoyed working with Curly. He was a Precision Millwright but I never met anyone that could beat him slinging a 16 lb. sledgehammer stretching those big bolts. I hadn't seen Curly much lately. We sometimes think we're too busy to go see an old friend but there aren't many days that go by without him entering my thoughts. There is no one else like him. I love you Curly. My love goes out to Alta and the family. You were his "Babe" for sure.

This precious man will be greatly missed. He gave the absolute best hugs and always showed kindness and grace. He treated everyone the same and always had a huge smile. Canned some of the best pickles and was always so happy to share his fresh eggs. Aubrey, we are so grateful that God allowed us to be a part. We love you Alta and family. Many prayers.
