Bobby W. Lewellen was born and raised in a small town of Friona, Texas---a farming community of the Northwest Panhandle of the High Plains were the wind always blows. He had spent his first 18 years growing up and working on the family farm. Part of his first summer out of high school in 1974 he worked with a construction company building logging roads on the Prince of Wales Island near Ketchikan, Alaska, got homesick, drove home and spent the next three years working with his Uncle Delton building metal commercial buildings. He spent one year at West Texas State University then moved to Channelview, Texas to build his sister and brother-in-law a new home on the San Jacinto River. He spent the next the next ten years as a General Contractor building custom homes and commercial projects in Houston area and had moved to Sealy, Texas doing the same. In July 1984 he and his brother Jay started Country Waste as a rural garbage service and spent the next thirty five years expanding this service throughout southeast Texas. They sold the business in 2017 and 2019 and both he and his brother now work for the same company. He started writing his poetry the year he was a freshman at college and his first three volumes of Country Boy Just Me is almost fifty years of his life story. He continues this pursuit in his evening and weekend hours at his home in Houston with his wife Linda. He spends as much time as possible traveling, writing, and learning.
