My late grandfather, Ron Brown, was one of 14 children, born dirt poor in the Ozark Mountains who rose from poverty with a 6th grade education. He taught me humility, the value of a hard day’s work and the satisfaction that comes with it. Most importantly, he continues to help me realize how there is far more to life than having some of the finer things, such as fancy cars, a huge house and a big boat.
