He was introduced to the landscaping/lawn/deck design business in Nacogdoches, then he moved to Houston for a few years. After a severe motorcycle/automobile accident in September 1985, losing his left leg, he recovered at his parents home, then moved to Arlington, Texas for approximately 20 years.
