Update us on your life since graduation:

After graduation I went to Missouri to take care of my grandparents. I did that for 6 years and then I moved back to Iowa or should I say the Ames Iowa area. Where upon returning I went to work doing something I swore I would never do and that was to work as a sanitation engineer yep that's right I went to work as a garbage man. I did that for 15 years before walking off the job and taking a job as a taxi driver. Which I did up until the time I was placed on disability due to health issues and that was the 12 year assignment. I really enjoyed meeting the diversity of people even both the job and I were total opposites as I'm not a big people person. I have been living in the Nevada Iowa for the last 15 years.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

Play on the computer and hang out with my dog and for the last three years i have gotten into feeding the humming birds they are so fun to watch. My next project with them is to get one to land on my hand. I will be posting a video of the humming birds on here.

Do you still see/talk to/hang out with any classmates? Who?

Well let's just say that in my job as a taxi driver I got to talk to some of my classmates whenever they took the cab. I also have some of my classmates on my Facebook page. And I also see a classmate at church

Favorite high school memory:

Just a couple of my Favorite Memories are The great Ames High Robbery and also Working with the Mentally Handicapped Kids from Wilson Beardshear.

Share an interesting adventure, accomplishment or place you visited:

Well I'll just start with my first interesting adventure and that was my very first airplane ride to Arizona which took place after graduation and after I got married. And secondly was my first trip to Las Vegas and thirdly and hopefully not the last was my second trip to Las Vegas to be on a taping of the old show the Powerball show. And meeting one of the actors from the old soap General Hospital. And although I didn't make it up on stage it was still really cool since I didn't have to spend my own money it was all paid due to the Iowa Lottery.

How often do you get back to Ames? Do you still have family there?

I make it back to Ames quite often as my dad still lives in Ames and my in laws live in Ames and I have a brother that still lives in Ames and the wife works in Ames.

Future dreams or ambitions:

Well my future dream was to become a NASCAR driver but being in my early fifties I think that dream has gone out the window. My ambition would be to create something that no one could do without and if it make me some money in the process that wouldn't be such a bad thing. And secondly would be to have something that I have written or will write published:
