It's great to be a member of the Class of 1955!

I was divorced in 1988 after 24 years of marriage. I have two sons, one daughter and six grand children, all great kids.

I'm active in the Rose Hill United Methodist Church and Douglass Masonic Lodge. I retired in 2002 after I fell and crushed a vertebra. I had a tumor and a kidney removed in February of 2002. Everything turned ok and I am very lucky to be where I am today. I have a few tractors that I mess with and I enjoy my grandchildren, the latest was born in February 2005.
