Marital Status: Married
Spouse Name: Lori
Children? Mine-no, 2 from wife's prior marriage
Occupation: Retired (Defense S/W - Unisys, Terminal Data, Litton, Northrop Grumman)
Comments: Although I intended to make a career in RF electronics hardware, after 7 years at JPL touching on several space programs I completed my BSEE and accidentally developed a 31 year career in software. My main hobbies have become snow skiing, Ham radio, and international travel (did Egypt, Italy, Greece, Ireland, Caribbean, Venezuela, Costa Rica, Peru, New Zealand, Australia, plus Norway and Sweden in 2015). After leaving La Crescenta I had horse property in Tujunga for many years (with dogs, goats, sheep, ducks, etc.) till I moved to a waterfront home closer to work in Westlake Village. My wife and I are both still adjusting to our fairly recent retirement from the corporate world, now only maintaining/managing our real estate holdings and learning to enjoy an evening cocktail with the party boat out on the lake, or on the mountain cabin's deck. I'm sorry to see the number of classmates who have passed, and how many others haven't established themselves on this site. Now that I'm out of Defense I feel more free to become social and establish myself on sites like this (my excuse for the posting delay). My thanks to you who are listed here, and best of luck and well wishes to all our CVHS alumni. It's been pleasant browsing and seeing where we've all migrated. So many lives and such wonderful diversity - magnificent! I think I remember more people in other classes than in our own. If you remember me and have a good memory to share please drop me a line!
