Great to hear from another former Enid resident (referring to Bob Zimmerman). I attended Garfield in the 4th, 5th, and 6th grade with the same teachers you had. Guess I did not make much of an impression. LOL. We moved to Florence, Kansas for some of my junior high years. I think Florence is about 30 or 40 miles from Newton.
Now to summarize the last 50 years.
Personal: Married to one wife forever with 3 children and 4 grandchildren.
Undergraduate degrees from Purdue and graduate degree from Central Michigan.
Work experience: Returned to Enid and worked for an Air Force contractor at Vance AFB for about 6 years in their computer department, with 2 years out for active army duty. Then accepted Civil Service position in Mineral Wells, Texas as Chief of Systems and Programming. After a few years there, I transferred to Indianapolis, Indiana at the Defense Finance Center. Finished my Federal career in Indianapolis with temporary assignments throughout to US. Retired at the end of 1995 and have spent my retirement years with some teaching, some income tax preparation, and other short term jobs.
Current activity. We just built a new home south of Terre Haute, Indiana. Home was finished in October of 2007. We have only lived there for a couple of months. This is due to the fact that we spend the winters on the Texas Gulf Coast at Mustang Island. I am now 68 years old and believe my work history is complete. We will be returning to Indiana in April and my next project is to take care of landscaping my property. Then lots of travel and visiting family and friends. Have a great retirement.
