Experimental artist who transformed junk cars into dinosaurs and created "Universal Woman," a life-sized sculpture assembled from discarded washers.
He was able to assemble a car from spare parts before he even learned to drive.
He hand-welded his dinosaur sculptures, some of which were nearly twenty feet high and sixty feet long. He sold some of these unique works for amounts approaching $100,000.
He was one of eleven children born to a farming family in Sebastian, Florida.
He and Barry Flanagan were both modernist sculptors.
