Hal’s story began in Bardstown, Kentucky; a tiny community tucked in the foothills of the Ohio River Valley. His generation grew up hearing the harrowing tales of the Great War, the decadence of the Roaring Twenties, and experiencing the hardships of the Great Depression. Hal learned to appreciate the value of hard work and took various odd jobs to help make ends meet – cutting grass, caddying and even being a waterboy at the Guthrie Distillery Warehouse.
