After graduation, I needed a break from school, so I eagerly joined the Navy to see the world at the age of 17. After three years in the Navy I returned to get a degree in Economics from the University of Arizona. By the early 70's I had purchased the Village Blacksmith shop in Tucson. Along the way, I married and had a son and a daughter who now live in Oregon and California respectfully. By 1980, I was "ready for a girlfriend". Little did Jim Klein know that when he told me about the 20 year reunion, that I would become re-acquainted with an old classmate Emily Kittle, and look back on that evening at the Wild Horse Ranch as a turning point in my life. Emily and I were married in 1982. In 1985, we bought a structural steel company (around the corner from the Blacksmith shop). Since the last update (2010), I can happily say the honeymoon continues. Emily and I have had a wonderful life together (married nearly 33 years now!), and stay in touch with many class of '60 classmates.
I sold my business (Morrison Barker Steel Construction) a year ago to my young partner, and now consider myself 'retired' - tho' I sometimes help out. Emily and I travel a lot more now - often to visit my two children who have been in Eugene, Oregon and the San Francisco area. My daughter (who served twice in the Iraq War) has just relocated to Raleigh, NC.
