What are you doing now: Upon retiring from the Navy in 1984, I went to work at Los Alamos National Laboratory and retired from there in 1997. I had a variety of assignments there from OPSEC to Safety Officer and then retired as a Nuclear Facility Buiilding Manager for the Weapons Division. While selling my home in Albuquerque, New Mexico, I worked for the Orvis Fly Fishing Company as a fly fishing instructor and guide for a year. I returned to Michigan where I am now fully retired. My son Donn joined the Navy for 8 years as an EW and my other son Phillip, joined the Navy for four years in the aviation field. Donn is working as a computer engineer in Atlanta, Georgia and Phillip is a robotics engineer working in Wixom, Michigan. My daughter Farah is happily married and living in Missouri. My daughter Karin passed away due to a life long battle with diabetes.
Other Comments: I returned to Michigan where I am now fully retired. My wife Bernice and I enjoy a quiet country lifestyle and we enjoy serving the Lord as Care Pastor for the Potter's House Family Worship Center in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan.
