My education after Grandview included MacMurray College (1957-1959) and The Ohio State University (1959-1961) from which I graduated with a B.S. in Education. I’ve taken graduate studies at Pepperdine University and U.C. – Irvine.
Having lived for many years in California, both in Laguna Beach and Palm Desert, we currently live part time in Hot Springs Village, Arkansas and Hellenburg, Scotland. My wife, Andrea Warner Osborne and I have three children: Scott, 23; Charlsie, 21; and Alex, 16. Both of us are teachers, and while I am the Director of Universal Sports Accord, she is the Supervisor of Basketball Officials in the Big West Conference. My hobbies and interests go along with the sports theme – golf, OSU football, and observing basketball officials.
The highlight for me was my induction into the GHHS Athletic Hall of Fame. Probably the most educational and enjoyable thing I was ever able to do was officiating college and international basketball games. I refereed games in 24 countries.

"Five more years!" Time has been so very good to me and our family. We have added a child since 1992--Brenda, a 24 year old Kiwi from New Zealand who came to us six years ago as a nanny and stayed. She is now adopted into our family and leads the parade--others are 13, 11 and 6. Andrea is the new head basketball and volleyball coach at Palm Valley High School (boys basketball) as well as Athletic Director. Palm Valley is a small private school that reminds me so much of Grandview schools. As for me, business succeeds in spite of my efforts. Golf handicap is down to 5, and I have been spending 8-12 weeks in Scotland each summer. Life is good. Looking forward to seeing everyone.
