Spouse: Carol Lewiston High School Class of 1965
2014 Reunion News:
In the last 50 years since high school, I have worked for and worked as the following:
Update Aug 17, 2009:
Past highlights: Carol and I celebrated our 40th Wedding Anniversary on August 16, 2009. Been in our new home we build just over 5 years now, and are still really enjoying it and kayaking on Black Lake. In December 2004, our daughter Kim became the final of our three children to successfully graduate from college, and she also got married in October of 2005. So we have now satisfied all of our big financial commitments to the children, and can earnestly start the process of spending their inheritance. My youngest son (Jeff) and I continue to run in Bloomsday each May, have been doing such together since 1986 when he was in the fifth grade. Otherwise don’t run much the rest of the year, but defer to walking and riding my bicycle – less trauma to my knees and hips -trying to stay active to maintain good health. Also, on of May 12, 2009, our daughter gave birth to our first grandchild: a grandson- Jasper; so we are respectively learning all about being a grandpa and grandma. I remain active in the National Conference of Appellate Court Clerks (NCACC), so continue to visit a new city in August of each year to attend our week long summer conference. Have visited the following in the last 5 years: Anchorage Alaska in 2004; Key West, Florida in 2005; Forth Worth, Texas in 2006; New Orleans, LA in 2007; Pittsburgh, Pa. in 2008, and Sacramento, CA in 2009.
Future Plans: Still hoping to do more traveling; keep up the moderate exercise, and stay as healthy as the passage of time allows. Carol starts her 20th year as a middle school counselor on August 20, 2009; and she is starting to seriously consider when she should retire. Because of the cost of medical insurance, I probably will not retire before the end of 2011, the year I turn 65.
2004 Reunion News:
Past highlights: Deputy Clerk/Attorney at the WA State Supreme Court Past highlights: We have managed to get our two older children through college and our youngest will graduate from Western Washington University in December of this year; so can sort of see the "light at the end of the tunnel". Just completed construction and moved into our "dream home". In connection with my membership in the Nation Conference of Appellate Clerks, I have in recent years been privileged to attend conferences in: Portsmouth New Hampshire, Savannah GA, New Port Beach CA, etc. This August we plan to attend the NCACC summer conference in Anchorage, Alaska. I have continued with my running (but at a reduced level-more bicycling)-a little over 3 years ago I was struck by a car while on my bike and have been slowly getting over trauma to my left hip. Every year, except for two in the early 80's, I have run the Bloomsday race in Spokane (also our youngest son Jeff has run Bloomsday with me every year since about 87). So I have maintained good health, and most importantly, am still happily married (will be 35 years August 16, 2004).
Future Plans: I hope to do more traveling; keep exercising at lest at a moderate rate and stay healthy. Probably will retire in the next 3-6 years (depending on health and then the reality of medical care costs and expenses).
