Ukiah, CA


Wow! How can it suddenly be 50 years since high school? And, how do we summarize what happened in between in a couple of paragraphs?

Here goes: After college I began a career with Cadillac in Detroit, transferring several times and eventually winding up in Northern California where we have lived since 1972. While at Cadillac, I met my wife Kathy, married in 1968, and had two children, Jeff and Lisa, now 39 and 36 respectively. I left Cadillac in 1976 and purchased a GM dealership (which now includes Mazda and Subaru) in Ukiah, CA, the Mendocino County seat, in the wine country north of San Francisco, where we raised our two children. After 34 years together, Kathy and I divorced and she is now a successful GM/Chrysler dealer herself in adjacent Lake County.

In 2007 I married Jeanie, a long time educator. In addition to Lisa, Jeff, his wife Jenny and their two sons, Cole (4) and Brody (2), our family has expanded to include Lisa’s new husband, Chris, Jeanie’s two sons, Micah ( and Noah ( their wives, and four additional grandchildren.. Jeff now runs our two dealerships: (, (, while Jeanie and I split our time between my home in Ukiah and hers in Marin County. We are enjoying semi-retirement, playing tennis and traveling. Lisa’s October wedding in Maui was an opportunity in the sun and surf to celebrate, with Chris’s family, both the new marriage and Lisa’s recent completion of her doctorate in psychology. She and Chris live in Carmel Valley, CA.

Over the years I have maintained contact with several of our class members, including Nancy (Kretchman) Golden, Dick Groth, and Joe Englert. I really look forward to seeing many others in August at our 50th. Dick, Joyce, Jeanie and I spend a delightful week cruising to Alaska on the Diamond Princess a couple of years ago. My Facebook page is proof that I have joined the digital revolution. I can be reached at I am not yet in the “Twitter” mode.

Best Regards to all,
