During the early 1990s, worked at the "Entex Technical Training Center" with Carlton Smith. He was one of the best Technical Instructors they ever had. He will be missed by all the students who attended his classes (I was one of them). Also remember going with Carlton and Barbara to the "Texas Opry Jamboree" in Magnolia Texas. They enjoyed the good music and fellowship at those events. One of my fondest memories was going to eat with Carlton at the "Potatoe Patch" off Fm 1960. Carlton always enjoyed watching the man pitch the freshly baked rolls to the patrons; it was lots of fun. Carlton will be missed by all of us.....
