He came back home to Craig County, where he started working as a mason/contractor and then he decided to go into business for himself. He purchased the car lot “D & D Auto Sales” in 1983, and then he added the Towing Service soon after, to which he operated and worked until the day of his passing. He enjoyed hunting and farming his cattle in Waiteville, having conversations with his family and friends, and helping many people throughout his lifetime. He will be greatly missed by his family; may he rest in peace.
