of Sun City, Arizona...
Betty passed away November 29, 1996 from malignant
She retired in 1989 and I retired in 1987 from District Marketing

We traveled extensively by travel trailer and motor home, in
the U.S. and Alaska. We sold our home on Tawas Bay south of Tawas City in 1991 and made our home base in Sun City,

We are living in the house that my wife, Helen,
was born in and we are spending lots of time and money trying to get the old place in shape.
After finishing at West Branch High, I worked at the Dodge Truck
plant at Warren, Michigan for a short time before joining the navy for four years.
Three of those years were served at the other end of a
ship with Stacy (Frank)Poling.
After leaving the navy, I worked for Chrysler Motors at Detroit
for about one year.
While working at Chrysler Corporation, Helen and I were married.
I then started work with Consumers Power in Macomb and Oakland
counties. I retired from Consumers after more than forty two years.
I have one step-son, John, and five grandchildren.
We enjoy traveling in the southern states as well as northern
Michigan. We maintain property in Lupton and get up home often...

Other than being a nomad, my profession was in
engineering and management.
I can't say that any of my accomplishments changed the rotational
velocity of the earth, and most of them were much more important to me than to anyone else.
After completing my Air Force enlistment, and an additional year
at the personal invitation of Harry Truman (along with a couple hundred thousand people), we lived in Greenland, Newfoundland,
Massachusetts, Florida and Colorado. Business took me often to four continents. While there, I met and briefed a lot
of people who thought they were important, but their opinion wasn't always that of the majority.
My wife, Martha, died in 1992.
While traveling, I just missed seeing Skip Walker in Nord, Greenland,
and did see him briefly in 1997 in Rome, New York. I saw Tom Murphy in Standish when he was the state policeman
that arrested a drunk driver who hit our car while we were vacationing from Florida.
I attended college courses at the University of Maryland extension
in Narsarssuak, Greenland.
