Program Manager - Marine/Government Married 2

After a couple years in college, went into the Navy.  Attended OCS inb Pensacola, FL got my wings in Corpus Christi, TX.  Durning the next few years, served with a squadron that took me as far west as Viet Nam and Thailand and as far east as Spain and Italy.  Spent a year in England then to a ship which got me to Europe, eastern Meditieranian and north of the Arctic Circle.  Ended my time in the Navy  as a Intelligence type in Norfolk, where I got out and decided to remain.

It took a while to decide what I wanted to do when I grew up, turned out it was technical sales.  I now work for a fastener company, marketing propriatary products to primarily the ship building and repair industries.  Probably travel in excess of 50,000 mile per year.  I have been working on the Virginia class submarine program (8 delivered, possibly as many as 35-40 to go, PCU Minnesota will be number 10).

My son-in-law is currently serving on USS Eisenhower, deployed and my son graduated from Navy flight school in Corpus Christi 43 years after I did, he is a Coast Guard officer.

Two ships played a major factor in what I do.  USS Intrepid (CVS-11), on which I went through a major North Atlantic storm and saw the power of the wind and sea.  Ps 107 vs 23-27 became very real.  The other is USS Thresher, a reminder that a mistake can have consequences.

When not working with ship building, I work with oil field production equipment

October 08, 1944 Retired Married 2

After graduating from the University of Minnesota with a math major, I attended Bethel Seminary for a short time and then found myself saluting and wearing a green uniform in Texas.  Spending three years at Fort Sam Houston, primarily as an instructor, the closest I came to combat was touring the Alamo in downtown San Antonio.    

With somewhat longer hair, I returned to the University of Minnesota for a master’s degree in educational psychology and then on to the University of Wisconsin-Madison for a Ph.D in education.  There I met my wife Louise, a grad student in French.

Heading south to Champaign, Illinois, I worked for the University of Illinois for six years.  Champaign was a nice place to live, but you wouldn’t want to visit there.  Our two sons, Dave and Andy, were born there.

A position at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse brought us back to Wisconsin, where we intended to stay five to ten years.  Nearly thirty years later, we are still here, but I do retain my Minnesota sports loyalties (as difficult as that can be these days).

Louise retired from UW-La Crosse four years ago, and I joined her the following year.  In retirement we enjoy biking (typically with a coffee or lunch stop), singing in a university and community chorus, reading, visiting our sons in Minneapolis and traveling.   I also play tennis regularly and have various volunteer assignments with our church and in the community.  We’ve talked about moving, but the time-worn adage of location, location, location, plus inertia, inertia, inertia, has kept us where we are.

Louise’s passion for French has taken us to France a few times.  We also had a great trip to Scotland, tracing my heritage on both sides of my family.  Last fall I went on a medical mission trip to Haiti, where a team from our church conducted a true walk-in clinic in a remote village on the Caribbean.

So fun to read everyone's profiles!  Great to be retired living 'up north' away from the bright lights/big city  - and especially away from the traffic!!!  We have a daughter and a son and three grandchildren - a granddaughter age 15 and two grandsons age 8 born three days apart - so kind of like twins.  We lead a quiet life in a smaller town - really enjoy it!

 I married Douglas Barton (RHS '60) in 1964, and we will celebrate our 48th anniversary on September 5. After brief stays in Washington DC and New York city, Doug and I returned to the Twin Cities in 1968 and have lived here ever since. We raised three Sons and have two Granddaughters ages 4 and  7 months. Doug retired in 2004, and we enjoy our Timberwolves season tickets and the live music scene - Doug returned to his sax in 2005 and plays locally in many bands and music jams. I attend quite a few of his gigs and thoroughly enjoy the atmosphere. I am looking forward to seeing you all again after all these years. Send Joan a MessageSend Joan a Message

October 08, 1944 Sales Consultant Retired Married 5
After reading all the interesting profiles I thought I better make my fifty years a little longer than two sentences.

Graduated and went to the University of Dubuque for two years and transferred to the University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee with a degree in History and Anthropology. 1968 was a bad year for getting a teaching job so--- Upon graduation I went to work for a book manufacturer and rose through the ranks to become a Plant Manager in Michigan.  Met my wife Roseanne in Milwaukee in 1969. Got married and had five children who are now living all over the US from Arizona to Chattanooga.

We are now empty nesters, and my wife insists on still working at our local hospital on a part time basis. I do my Shrine thing and am easily adapting to Retirement. Had two great careers, first as a Printer and then a  Plant Manager for Quebecor in Midland Michigan, printing magazines and then 20 years as an Area Rep for Fujifilm. Enjoying my  4 Grand Children that are in Scottsdale and am busy driving the Transport Van for Shriners Hospitals as a Volunteer Driver.

I did spend the Summer of 1986 coaching Baseball and taking our kids from Midland to the Little League World Series as their Coach. It was fantastic for my son and his team mates and a once in a life time experience. never could play the game well, but learned how to coach the sport. Its easy when you have talent.

Looking forward to seeing people as it has been many years since I have been in Minnesota.

May 01, 1944 Retired CPA Married 2
 After graduation, I attended Augsburg College for one year. I took the next year off and then enrolled at the U of M in June of 1964. At the same time, I met Janet and we got married in 1965. She was a 1964 Richfield graduate. We started our lives together in Annandale, MN and lived on Bass Lake. However, in 1966 Uncle Sam claimed that he needed my service and was gone for almost three years. After returning from the service we were back in Annandale and I enrolled at St. Cloud State and received a BS in accounting. Janet received a teaching degree in 1969 and taught junior high school in St. Cloud. We moved back to the "cities" in 1975.

We both are retired and it has been great. Four years ago we purchased a home in Marco Island, FL and live there most of the time. The sunshine, fishing and beaches are hard to beat. We have a summer home in Hackensack on Ten Mile Lake. We are fortunate that both of our sons, Mac and Andy and their wives Trish and Laura, have cabins on the lake as well. We are able to see them, along with our four grandchildren, throughout the summer. You still can't beat the Minnesota summers.

I'm looking forward to seeing you at the reunion.
