A.T. and Ruth met at the wedding of his brother David to Eva Stoots. They began dating off and on, but eventually married and were inseparable until Ruth passed away.
A.T. and Ruth had a very loving marriage. They had no children and spent lavishly on nieces and nephews. All remembered getting silver dollars (usually 5 of them) for birthdays and sometimes Christmas which were kept by most as they discovered after A.T.'s funeral.
They were both smokers. Ruth smoked until she begin to have heart problems in her later years. A.T. smoked his last cigarette moments before he died from pancreatic cancer.
They were great kidders. Ruth called A.T. "Bud".
A.T. won the "Most Handsome" in the Tennessee Centennial celebrations. And competed in a local "Best Beard" competition, also taking top honors.
Ruth and A.T. often attended the football games of the University of Tennessee. And were avid fans all their lives.
A.T. worked at Goodyear in Johnson City as an accountant and often attended many Goodyear events. Including Goodyear sponsored races at Bristol Raceway. He took his niece Vickie to one race so she could meet her favorite Nascar driver at the time, Darrell Waltrip.
Ruth passed before A.T. and it was obvious to family and friends that her death took the sweetness out of his life. He developed pancreatic cancer not long after and eventually passed due to complications of the illness.
