- After graduating, I attended the University of Arizona getting my
degree in Chemical Engineering. Following graduation in 1963 I briefly
went to work for the DuPont Company in Nashville, TN before reporting
for two years of active duty in the Artillery Corps of the U.S. Army. I
was stationed in Spokane, WN at Fairchild AFB as Launcher Platoon Leader
of a Nike Hercules Air Defense Missile Site. In Spokane I met my
wife-to-be, Joanne Calaway, where she was attending Gonzaga University.
- Following my active duty I returned to DuPont in Wilmington, DE.
After a two year long range romance, Joanne and I were married in Great
Falls, MT in January of 1968. Immediately following our marriage, I was
transferred to Martinsville, VA where DuPont had a nylon plant. During
our six year stay in Martinsville both of our daughters were born, Kelly
in 1970 and Erin in 1973.
- I returned to Wilmington in 1974 where I spent the rest of my DuPont
career in a variety of assignments including managing two different
businesses. Joanne owned and operated ski tour business. I retired in
1998 after 35 years of service. Joanne sold her business the same year.
- Our daughters are both married and our older had our first
grandchild, Tucker, in May of 2007. He is the cutest little guy you’ve
ever seen! We now live in Telluride, CO where we are enjoying retirement
although I am doing part time consulting and Joanne is a Real Estate
Broker. We enjoy the mountains and ski in the winter, hike and play golf
in the summer. We have just returned from a two week visit to South
America celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary.
I couldn't put Patricia last.
