Written by Bill in response to the fiftieth reunion questionnaire:
I was in the US Air Force in 1960 as a Military Policeman, stationed at March AFB, Riverside, California. That is where I met my wife Doris and we have been married for 46 years. Doesn't seem possible. I have a son, David, daughter-in-law Gloria, and two grandchildren.
After the Air Force, I got into banking and finance for my entire career. I was Vice President and Manager of both Security Pacific National Bank and Great Western Bank. Now that I am retired, instead of work, Doris and I swim and exercise every day, seven days a week. Since retiring we have moved to Trilogy, which is a beautiful golf resort in LaQuinta, California and have been here a year and a half now.
We have always loved travel and next month (July 2007) Doris and I are taking a three week vacation in Italy, Greece and Turkey.
Grandview to me was a great place to live and go to school. It was always a small community where everyone knew each other. I don't know if anyone remembers this, but I was in the Grandview High Marching Band when I was in junior high school. I played trumpet.
Well, we have all gone different ways and directions. it doesn't seem possible that it has been fifty years ago. I remember all of it like it was yesterday. I am very sorry to hear of the deceased classmates. I remember them well.
I will try to make it to the 50th.
