He graduated from Monterey High School in 1958. Immediately after high school, Windal began Texas Tech and started as a delivery driver for Don’s Flowers. Eventually, Windal worked as a designer, before purchasing the shop.

Windal and Sunny successfully owned and operated Don’s Flowers in Lubbock for more than 40 years. During that time, they were very involved in several professional organizations including South Plains Professional Florists, West Texas New Mexico Florist Association, and the WTNM Past Presidents Association. Always promoting his industry, maintaining customer relationships, and being the perfect host for peers was his passion. He was awarded the highest award in WTNM, the Silver Rose Award, and served as all offices and President twice, evolving to a Past President of the West Texas New Mexico Florist Association. During his leadership years, he was part of the founding of the association’s credit union, to which he always took pride in. In 2011, Windal was awarded the Honorary Lifetime Membership to the West Texas New Mexico Florist Association.
