If you’ve read Joyce’s bio, you know some of mine. We’ve been married almost 37 years and raised two children; Chris age 36 and Andrea age 30. We also have one Grandson, Brendon, who is 9 years old.

After High School I attended Ohio State University. I got my degree, Bachelor of Arts, with a major in Social Sciences. Most people who knew me in High School would figure that was a major that was about perfect for me. College was a great experience for me, I joined a Fraternity, went to great football games, drank too much, got some exposure to lots of different culture and people, and learned a few things from books. There were lots of extra curricular events, but I was usually working to pay my way through. One of my goals was always to go back with lots of money, take classes that I never went to, attend lots of parties, have a really cool car, nice apartment, and just live the experience to the fullest. Fortunately, I matured before I was able to live my dream.

When I look back on our times from High School to our adult lives I can’t help but remember some of the really significant events of the time, Viet Nam, race riots, LSD, marijuana, Martin Luther King, Bobby Kennedy, Woodstock, the Kent State riots I guess Viet Nam affects me the most. That event affected the lives of so many men and women of our generation. When we got out of High School, it was either go on to school, or Viet Nam, there was no wiggle room or time to “find yourself” after high school. I think our class only lost one member to that war, and it amazes me that I was never involved. It was always my goal to get a college education. That one goal and fate helped me move right past what was probably one of the biggest risks of our young lives.

After graduation from college, I worked in Pharmaceutical sales. I was fortunate to make a 33 year career with two companies. I retired in 2006, partly because I was ready to and partly because of a disability with my back. I did OK in business, I won my share of awards, got a few promotions and made some big deals, but no one could accuse me of being a workaholic.

My hobbies included wood working, boating, golf, and any other reason to take off Wednesday afternoon. I’m actually pretty good with making things from wood. I restored an old Lyman boat one year. We used it for several harrowing trips on Lake Erie until I got smart and we bought a “plastic” boat. The old Lyman always turned heads at the dock though. I make mostly art work now from wood. I do high end jewelry boxes and lathe turned vases and bowls, and I sell them in galleries and art shows. With Joyce’s help, I actually got photographs of two of my pieces published in two separate books. I guess all that work I had to do on that old house in Berkey paid off some.

There are a couple things that were my favorites in high school, the social events, the great looking girls (especially the one I married), my friends, and the cars! God how I loved the cars of our time! I never had one of the really cool ones, but one of these days, I’m going to break into our 401 K fund and re live that dream.
