Interests, hobbies, and pastimes:
Grassroots politics since mid-80's. I am a Constitutional Conservative. The original intent of the U. S. Constitution and the Ten Commandments - it just doesn't get any better than that. As a Nation, we have let those two documents slip through our fingers and into the shredder. What a shame.
Staying married to my first wife for over 46 years and having a mutual respect to and from our children. Family love is unconditional.
Favorite memory of MHS:
"single" favorite. Surely you jest. Commarade of my friends. Walking the halls. Ball games. Organizing Industrial Arts Club. If I have to pick "just one" it is the graduation ceremony - first class to be outside at the new location, and I felt a sense of FREEDOM like I never felt before or after.
Momento to remind you of 1962:
I think I still have the year book and my diploma around somewhere as well as a couple of shop projects. It doesn't get much more cherished than memories.
Biggest lesson learned:
Honor God, honor your commitments and respect the dignity of others.
Closest friends in 1962:
I hesitate to name any in fear of being embarrassed by leaving some out. Larry Adamick, Dan Loyd, Harold Haag, Bobbie Thompson Chapin, Chuck Mitchell, Ed Kucheck, Linda Presley, Ray and Roy Woodcock, John Rice (my best man MHS 63), John Pilfer, Mike Gray, etc. It has been between 10 and 50 years since I have seen any of them.
