When I was 5 years old, my dad and I were separated - I was adopted by my stepdad, who changed my name to Patton.
I missed my dad and looked for him off and on for the next 50 years. On New Years Eve, 2003, my wife Joanne saw a picture
of a Denzel Roberts on the internet. She thought "there was a resemblence", so she crafted an informative and inquiring
e-mail and sent it off to a man whose middle name was not what I thought it was. It was a night to remember forever.
All these years I thought my real dad's middle name was the same as mine, and that I was a "Junior". I was not.
We were flown to Houston for my dad's 80th birthday to meet him. It was wonderful. Names dont matter! GENES
do! We walk alike, talk alike, think alike - have the same likes/dislikes. I am so happy to have my dad!
He is still active and intellegent and I am proud to know I take after him! He has been in business for several years
now, custom crafting gunstocks and pistol grips. They are fabulous! I have ALWAYS loved to work with wood, now
I know where I got it from!
