I know this is probably in the wrong place, but please bear with me.
He was at one time in a former life, the owner of a gas station in Pinebluff, NC when US 1 was only a two lane track. Later he went on to become a woodshop teacher at the local High School, (Aberdeen, NC) and taught many a young man how to make a saw cut straight, how to figure and angle and how to make a living. He knew more about power tools, hand tools and craftsmanship than just about any man I’ve ever met.
Maybe you were one of those young men that he taught.
His name is Billy Carpenter, and will soon not be with us anymore. It will be a great loss of a real teacher, a great man and a personal friend.
