Alton served as a Barber and Hairstylist in Fort Worth for 73 years. Many of his long time clients were so loyal to him that when he was recuperating from major surgery they would hold off getting haircuts for many weeks waiting for him to return to work. Alton has customers that were third generation. Alton loved to ride their horses with his children, family, friends and members of the CowTown Posse in parades, rodeo events, family horse events and trail rides.
Alton and La Donna enjoyed trips to California, The Panhandle, Colorado, Granbury and other places visiting family. His granddaughter Katie has these words to say "Grandpa was the best!"
