He was a small town country boy; the youngest of five children. His father was hard on him not meaning to harm, but it caused him to grow resentments and fears towards him. This scarred him mentally and he became dependent on alcohol at a young age, not knowing that it would be very detrimental and life threatening. This caused him to lose loved ones, almost his own life, everyone that cared for him, jobs, marriage, hitting rock bottom, and facing prison time for DWI''s. He felt the whole world was against him but ultimately, he was against himself and very self abusive. While the resentments and fears grew, so did his problems until he was fortunate enough to turn his life around.
