The familydecided to go to Dallas, Texas where the intention was to enter the appliancebusiness with Willella's brother, Walter Grimes. This did not work out whenWalter could not come up with his share of the money. Then they dedided toreturn to Macon. Leon was able to get his job back at Robbins AFB where heworked until his retirement in 1970 after 28 years of government service.After returning from Texas they lived on Guyton Street (BeddingfieldSubdivision).
