Born in Moultrie, GA, C.W. was a graduate of Moultrie Senior High School, Class of 55 and attended Southern Poly Technical. Kindly known as the "Gentle Giant" C.W. worked with Army Corps of Engineers for a time, was a long-haul trucker and manager of Southeastern Automotive Warehouse for most of his working years. Fishing, farming, muscle cars, and high school football were some of his favorite pastimes. The crunch of pan fried bream (extra crispy), the taste of fresh greens and tomatoes, and the truckers' camaraderie on the road brought a wide grin to this mountain of a man.
