2014 Reunion News: After high school, I spent three and a half years in the Air Force, stationed in southern Idaho, Dominican Republic, and Vietnam. I lived in Yakima a couple years attending trade school. I moved to Portland and worked as a machinist for 39 years at several shops in the Portland area. I retired in 2008 and did some remodeling on our house in Newberg, OR. We sold it in October 2012 and were in the process of buying a home in Washougal, WA, when I had heart surgery. The doctors at Portland VA hospital found a tumor inside my heart the size of an egg. I had surgery the same day they discovered it. I spent only five and one-half days in the hospital. Luckily, the tumor was benign. We moved into our new home 26 days after my surgery. First time I ever had to hire movers. Four months later, I was playing golf again. Now I keep busy golfing and working around the house. We also babysit our very active grandson. He'll be three in September.
