1954 | J.B. Coxwell


J.B. quit school and purchased a $2 bus ticket so that he could join an older brother in Clearwater, Florida. Once there he got a job installing fences around trees at a golf course so that the bulldozer could remove them. Soon he replaced the bulldozer driver, still only 15 years old, proving even then that he was ahead of his time. He continued to work in the Florida construction industry, gaining extensive experience and insights into what it took to be successful in this business.
