Year 1972 Big Lake, Alaska
Ben and wife, Nadene and son, Robbie, moved to Alaska from Lubbock, Texas in the late 1960’s to cash in the oil pipe line. Ben was an excellent welder. He and Robbie adapted well to the work and fun in Alaska. Poor Nadene tagged along so she would not miss anything. Her job was to scream and scold!! They all had the deep Texas accent. The jovial Ben with his ever and always stories, sent smiles to everyone he talked with.
