Graduated from Sonoma State. Served four years in the Air Force. Worked in three CPA firms as an accountant. Was Chief of Accounting and Human Resources for a major commercial heating manufacturer.

I was very fortunate and blessed to have the finest co-workers and supervisors possible, all BFF's! And, God Bless the Class of '66 and all my friends!!!

School Story:

I remember when Fred Coggins and I went to the Napa Fair Grounds Auditorium and saw Ike and Tina Turner, the Isley Brothers, and Chuck Berry, and danced with chicks while they played the music live, and the cost was $3.00 a ticket!

Also, took Lucretia Hammond to the Rolling Stones concert on Mick Jaggers 21st Birthday at the Cow Palace in San Francisco, 4 hours of listening to the Sopwith Camel, the McCoys (Gloria), the Jefferson Airplane and then every Rolling Stones song upto and including Satisfaction! What a memory and we were only about a hundred feet from the front of the Stage. Mick was in a white tee shirt, white pegged levis and tennis shoes, just like we all dressed at Napa High. LOL
