    Great memories from 50+ years ago and then when son graduated from East TN School of Preaching & Missions. May you have blessings from God as you lean on Him during this time. Larry York

    Your last visit to Knoxville when Michael graduated from East Tennessee School of Preaching and Missions and your interchanges by E-mail will always be remembered.

    I’d just like to say Alton helped me a lot when I first tried to get my business of the ground. The first time I met him he was working at Barge Waggoner in Downtown Nashville. He got up from his chair and introduced himself and was a nice as could be. I was just some guy walking through the door…
    I needed an Asbestos specification reviewed by a C.I.H.
    He not only patiently worked with me, but also mentored me in environmental solutions and providing good business practices.

    I will really miss him.
