Poppie and my grandma moved from Kentucky to Ypsilanti,Michigan after their children were grown and married. He went to work at Ford Motors from 1957 until retiring in 1966. May of 1966 he retired and they moved to Marion, Ohio where they bought a house 4 doors down from my parents (Don and Patsy Hayes) and I.

My Grandpa loved to garden. His yard and garden were his pride and joy, never a weed. My Grandparents enjoyed the simple life, never drove a car, nor rode a bicycle, so they always had to live close to one of their children. While in Michigan their daughter Irene would take them to church, store ect. When they came to Marion it was my mom who drove them every where. But, I must say my Grandpa walked alot. He would walk twice a week to town, to the grocery as long as his bags were not to much to hull with his little two wheel cart or carry.

I had heard from the family, my grandpa was a horseman. He broke horses for a living while in Kentucky and used big work mules to do the heavy work. He provided well for his family. He was a loving Grandfather and always had a smile.
