On the occasion that Ma and I get overwhelmed with so much work that we can't handle on our own, we still keep all the work in the family.
Meet uncle Leo.
Uncle Leo is DEEP south east Texas bayou raised along the Sabine river, from Deweyville Texas. Him and Pa grew up across the street from each other as kids.
He's the type of man you want on your side if things go south, but don't ask him for his opinion unless you want the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help him God. Not one to pull punches, he will tell you your best assets as well as your failures with no qualms and ZERO reservations about doing so.
Uncle Leo is a U.S. Navy Veteran of 10 years. He spent time in Iraq as well as 21 other countries ( Japan, Bahrain, Iraq, India, China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Spain, Greece, Germany, Kuwait, Jordan, South Korea, Vietnam, Diego Garcia, Saipan, Guam, Australia, Okinawa, Djibouti, and Portugal just to name a few ).
Just because he is simple and straight forward does not mean he is simple minded or dim witted. The man has an IQ bordering somewhere around 140ish, but doesn't throw it out there. he also has one of the strongest work ethics of anyone you will ever meet.
Brain and brawn - all in one neat package.
If you see him on the job site with us one day, be sure to say "hi". He isn't shy.
