  1. We had many good times together. In the mid-70’s, we carpooled, driving back and forth from Pantex. Many nights we raced anyone that would race, back to Amarillo. In case you’re wondering, we always obeyed the speed limit.

    In the late 80’s Stanley came to work at the Amarillo Helium Plant. He was an excellent machinist and fun to be around, always ready for a good joke or story or ready to pull a prank on some unsuspecting person.
