Sandy and I - 1962

 

My parents and siblings. As usual, my mother has to hold on to me!

 

  After retiring from the Federal Government, I returned to California where I now live in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Since retiring I have been active in the VFW, the president of our local Fire District, a volunteer Sheriff's Deputy and ran for county supervisor one year.

     I was also in a band for several years as the lead singer and rhythm guitar player. The band played at local resorts and in the various Yacht Clubs in the San Francisco bay area. 

     I started my own business a few years ago but now consider myself as Simi-retired. Soon after starting my business, my wife Sandra became ill with cancer and after a long brave fight passed away in January of 2008.

    I have three children and two grandchildren. My oldest son is a Software Flight Engineer with  Lockheed Martin Space Systems and has been involved in various high profile projects such as the Hubble Telescope. My second oldest son is a Management Analyst for the Veterans Administration and a Professor at a private college. My youngest is my daughter who has a degree in Business Computers, an accomplished Pianist, and is the mother of my grandchildren.

    My hobbies include music, genealogy, NASCAR races, football, riding my Harley, teaching my grandson to keep his KFX 90 quad on all four wheels, etc.
