San Angelo has been my lifelong home. I graduated from Central High School in San Angelo in 1968 and then received my B.S. in Pharmacy from the University of Houston in 1973. I met Mary in pharmacy school and we married in 1974. We have one daughter, Leslie, who graduated from the Texas Tech School of Law and is now a practicing attorney in Austin. My father, Chick, started Medical Arts Pharmacy in 1957. I became a partner in the business soon after I graduated from pharmacy school in 1974. Chick retired several years ago and Mary and I became the "dubious" owners f the company. Recently, we have begun transitioning ownership to Mary's brother, Blane Williams. Our company has grown significantly over the last half century. In addition to our retail store, we began a second venture, Medi-Mart Pharmacy, in 1989. This pharmacy provides specialized services to nuring homes and other institutionalized patients. My goal is to continue to provide the much needed services to patients that many retails seem to shy away from while staying on the cutting edge of technology to make those services happen.
