Married the love of my life, Nadine, in 1958 while I was at UCLA working on my engineering degree.  Best decision I've ever made!  We have two children.  Leslie is a school teacher here in Arizona and David is an engineering manager with the FAA in Los Angeles.

I went to work for Northrop in Anaheim after graduation and attended night school to get my masters in Aerospace Management from USC.  When the aerospace slowdown hit in the 70's, I decided to change to a more stable (?) profession, teaching.  After 21 years I retired from Anaheim High School where I had taught math and computer science ( I wonder what Mrs. Mills would have said about that?).

My hobbies over the years have included building street rods, restoring old Fords, flying and politics.  Now that we are retired here in the Phoenix area we enjoy playing golf (poorly), travel and going out with friends.  Life is great!

  Howdy from Arizona -  Haven't seen any recent updates to the Class of '54 page so I thought I would send along some info I'm proud of. 
Nadine and I celebrated our 50th Wedding Anniversary this past August.  We actually had several celebrations, rather than one big affair, with friends and relatives while we were back in California for our annual "get the heck out of the Arizona heat" escape.  Shirely (Thacker) and John Richter met us for a long breakfast gab fest in Seal Beach and John and Julie Mendell treated us to a gourmet dinner at one of Long Beach's finer establishments.  We also spent 2 days at Disneyland battling the crowds. The place has special memories for us as Nadine
worked there on opening day in 1955 as a summer job.  I would get in free to visit her several times a week as the guards at the employee
entrance knew she was my girl friend and would just wave me through.  I doubt that would work today. 

  Hope some our classmates will update us on what's going on in their lives.     Looking forward to our 55th Reunion.
