After highschool, attended the University of Minnesota for a short time then joined the Marines for four years of service as a Missile technician... (released from active service in 1969 - Sergeant E-5)
Married my highschool sweetheart (Rita Lind - Central High School) while still in the Marines in California (1968) and upon returning to Minnesota we both worked at Control Data for a couple years...
Now we live in Florida - about an hour's drive from our three children and five grandboys ... (no one told me about the Joys of Grandchildren!!!) My wife Rita and I still love the water, sun and sand here and now that we are both retired we can endulge ourselves any day we choose... Boating (fishing of course), Bicycling, and time at any of the beaches is always fun!
Rarely get back to Minnesota, but if there is no snow or ice on the ground (July, August) I have been coaxed to return. Last summer we enjoyed a visit in August - and even visited some of the old haunts (Lake Nokomis, Lake Calhoun, Minnehaha Parkway and the Falls...) along with visiting with family and friends up North (Blaine, Brainerd, Deerwood, etc..)

School Story:

I do remember my High School years, but to tell the truth it was the most awkward and agonizing time of my life - the best memories were those spent meeting and dating my future wife, working at local food service jobs and working to keep an old car running.

Thank God for the things I learned in Metals, Autoshop, and other shop courses... That prepared me for taking care of the smaller problems in life!
