In 1952 the family moved to Schertz, Texas, where the Commissioner later attended Samuel Clemens High School. Upon Graduation he completed two and half years at San Antonio Junior College. Married for over thirty years with two sons, the commissioner's hobbies include golf and skeet shooting.

Commissioner Wolverton owned and operated an Electrical Contracting business for 9 years where he gained some of the experience that has helped him as a County Commissioner.
