years he became a very adept cowboy. In 1916 his mother and
stepfather moved to Sonoita, Az.

Cecil married Dottie Leona Moore in 1930, and soon after
bought their first homestead.

Cecil had operated the Sonoita Garage, drilled water wells,
drilled for a placer mining company in Sinaloa, Mexico, worked
for the State Highway Dept, and more. During these years,
he and Lottie would buy more homesteads as finances would allow.

raised their sons, Raymond and Donald.

land and the building to the Sonoita Bible Church.
