my dad’s birthday is today – September 9th, 1924

He grew up as a farmer near Douglas, Georgia. He was on a destroyer in the South Pacific during World War II. After the war we moved from South Georgia to Fort Pierce Florida. He went to work for the Coca-Cola Bottling Company, and that is where he learned his craft. We later moved to Jacksonville and Dad opened his own business. After retiring, dad moved back to South Georgia. He had a bout with prostate cancer and he died with Alzheimer’s disease. He was a great provider and an awesome dad.
