 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
Alton was working for an oil company in Cuba when WW2 broke out. He returned to the states and enlisted in the Navy. After serving 5 years he returned to civilian life and went to work for the Texas Oil Company out of Houston. He worked for them until his retirement.
He had no children of his own and his first wife passed away before I knew him.
He remarried a woman who already had grown kids in the winter of is life.
Though I did not know him all that well when I was around him it was very interesting to speak with him. Had some great stories. I do know that he is missed by my wife (his neice) and her brother.
