He started his business Berry Delicious and we loved to stop by the booth he had at the Mercedes livestock show every year. Later he merged his company with Valley Pecan and would take us all to pick up inventory all over the state. His road trips were always full of laughs and good food. We would stop at little hidden cafes that had the best foods and deserts oh and best prices.
