He was born Jan. 23, 1895 in Arkansas and raised in Oklahoma. He served in World War I and was blown from the trenches and the explosion broke both is arms and legs. He said it was the "landing" that broke his body. He also had mustard gas damage to his vocal cords and spoke very softly. Hubert drove a school bus throughout the late 1940s and 1950s. He was a janitor for the Jr. College and drove their sports bus to competitions. H.B. Nelms never told anyone his name of Haliburton and was a Baptist and a Democrat - in that order.

This is Hubert Nelms, Me (Judy) Mom (Dovie Kite Hugg) and my mom's brother Thurman KITE. all Borger residents.
