Graduation seems like just a short time ago, so how could so many things happen to all of us in such a small amount of time? For myself, I give God the credit for watching over me all these years even though I did crazy things and didn't deserve His protection. It just shows how much He loves us.
I started working at Boeing in early '56 in the Computing Department, which proved to be a fun job for 38 years. I retired from Boeing in '94. During my time at Boeing, I met and married Carol in '62. We had a son, Lance in '64 and a daughter, Damona in '66. They are both married and live close by. Lance has 2 daughters and a son.
My favorite hobbies have always been hunting and fishing, however, I enjoy just being outdoors. For the last 7 years our grandchildren have become a priority in our lives. Living close together has allowed us to maintain a close relationship with our kids and grand kids, which has been a blessing. We traveled a lot when the kids were home and never found anyplace that suited us any better than right here. Hot windy summers, bitter cold winters with spring and fall ranging somewhere between the two extremes. All this with many fantastically beautiful days interspersed throughout. We've seen and done a lot, so an occasional trip satisfies our wanderlust.
50 years later, in 2005, we enjoy life on Walton's Prairie. We are in good health, involved with our Church and have a weekly family dinner to keep up with all our busy lives. We are blessed beyond measure and desire the same for you.
