  2. Met my wife there, and we were married between my 3rd year of college, and my 4th year (Internship in Medical Technology).
  3. Worked for 8.5 years in the Immunopathology Lab at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics before taking a position as School Principal in Northwestern Ontario.
  4. While in Ontario, I acquired my private pilots license and flew some 440 hours (Most of the landings on lakes with a Luscombe) before moving to Ohio in 1992.
  5. I spent 8.5 years in Bangladesh doing member care for several families

  7. Have a lovely wife, two sons, and three grandsons, who are teenagers.

  1. You have lived an interesting, challenging and rewarding life. Thank you for sharing. I’m sure you have some wonderful aviation stories to tell….I had a brief but unremarkable career flying a C182 around Papua New Guinea 40 years ago. The memories never fade. Best wishes for the future to you and your extended family.


    1. Thanks for your comments! Yes, you described my life well! Thanks for your best wishes. Trust you are doing well. I guess we spend as many years as we can, making memories, and spend the rest of our lives enjoying those memories.
