At the age of 12, Aldwin moved North with his family to Benton Harbor, Michigan, where he attended Hull Jr. High School, and later graduated from Benton Harbor High School. While in high school, Aldwin studied Auto Mechanics, and after graduating, held several jobs in Auto Body Shops as a Jr. Mechanic. Aldwin later moved to Ypsilanti, Michigan where he continued cultivating his skills. Aldwin loved cars and enjoyed working on them. He loved playing pool, listening to jazz, cooking on the grill, and going out to eat. He was an avid weightlifter; enjoyed ice fishing; and later, driving semi-trucks for his last employer. He worked until he could no longer drive trucks, due to his failing health.
