He spent his career and retired from there until Monsanto was purchased by Sterling Chemical. He continued with Sterling Chemical and was promoted to leadman over the valve shop whereby his skills aided them to achieve high awards with OSHA and others. He ultimately retired from Sterling Chemical. During his career with the refineries he also served as a Galveston County Sheriff’s Officer and a Kemah Police Officer.
