Charles and I went through four years of high school at Morgan County. Harold came up behind us. I got to know James and Mitchell later. They were all hard workers and business people. Charles and I and a few more of us did a lot of trucking during those four years. He was always telling about his father and older brothers and their trucks. I only saw him a few times after school. a couple times at the store at Millard and an auction or two. He was always the same friendly good buddy from school. Proud to have known him. God bless his family and friends.
