50th Reunion
Life has been good! God has blessed me with a wonderful wife (Carol) for 43 years, and good health. After high school, I served Uncle Sam, and then worked in sales in Denver. At the tender age of 32, I went back to college to become a high school teacher. I moved to California in 1975 and taught accounting, business classes, coached football, basketball, track and golf.
space
I retired in 2001, having served the last 10 years as the assistant principal of administration of a new high school. Carol retired from her job as a high school math teacher. We’re enjoying retirement, being home, golfing, off-roading, traveling frequently in our RV and cruising the high seas. Life is good!

50th Reunion
Finally, I’m really retired from teaching as I quit subbing this year. It was a great career for me. My family has grown, and I jump at every opportunity to spend time with three great-nieces and three great-nephews! I continue to walk and exercise on a regular basis and enjoy it most of the time. I’m exploring a new opportunity to serve in my church. A current song, “Blessed Be Your Name,” summarizes so well my faith in the Lord Jesus. Looking forward to visiting with friends at the reunion.

Biology with Pearl Carpenter, who was committed to getting students to say “stomACH” instead of “stomICK”. Having to copy the Reader’s Digest and SAT questions in Mr. Capper’s English class. Having to memorize play lines for Miss Ruttan. An assembly skit with the ball players dressed up as girls. Being in plays, especially one where the crowd shouted “Give us Barabbas.” The youth church group that had hay rides and skating parties.

I recently retired after 20 years of service in state and county government and 25 years of owning our own business. Married to Gerold for 49 years, we have two children and four grandchildren. I’m enjoying good health and stay active with aerobics, yoga, pilates and weight lifting as well as walking. I enjoy traveling and outdoor activities. Having our children living close by in the metro area, keeps us busy with family activities. I plan to do more traveling and to volunteer as a leader in 4-H in the months to come.

"It is with  much sadness to inform you of the death of our good friend and fellow 1959 classmate Marvin Hubbard.  For the past 3 days I have been emailing him at the email address that he provided me during the 50th reunion preparation but kept getting return responses.   I decided to call and ended up conversing with his wife.  According to her, Marvin died February 19th, 2010, from leukemia caused by bone cancer. "

The last four years have been an interesting journey. I contracted multiple myeloma cancer in August 2005. I survived that and have been cancer free for over two years. You can read about what I went through and how it challenged my Christian faith if you wish at my blog http://www.cancerfaithandyou.wordpress.com.

About a year ago I contract a disease called MDS which suppresses blood cell production. That I tell you not to feel sorry for me, but say that the entire process has strengthened my relationship with God and spawned a second blog www.discoveringtruehappiness.blogspot.

com. We I try to tell of the personal peace and happiness that I have achieved during the last four years. During that time I also wrote two books that are yet to be published.

I also teach Christian History to a group of interns at the church, work with new believers in a group called Alpha, work with a group of drug addicts and alcoholics at a rehabilitation center in Clearwater. My life is a little busy, but I like it that way.Feel free to share any of this information.
