Paige, who is a senior at a major university and doing a super job with
a 3.8 GPA (proud papa....can you tell?!). I've dabbled in the music business
off and on, and worked for some great companies during my career such as
Boeing Aircraft and Calsonic North America (a subsidiary of Nissan). I
now spend most of my time shooting pool at the senior center with occasional
tournament play. I do a little traveling, and I enjoy the precious few
moments my daughter and I can share. I'm into antique automobiles and enjoy
reading auto history as well as late WWII Pacific Theater and Manhattan
Project accounts. I also enjoy reading my Bible, (thanks to Pastor Allen
of World Outreach Church; wochurch.org), spending time with good friends,
and watching the good, ol' boob tube in the evenings. Would love to hear
from my old school and playmates. Always partial to the girls, but of course,
would love to hear from the guys too. Even though I've been away for many

still living there, take interest, and take care of our hometown.
