Family Information

Wife- Nancy (Occupational Therapist, College Professor, darling wife of 43 years); Son - Keith (married - 1 child; Physical Therapist), Son - Christopher (married - 1 child; Software Engineer)


Millie drafted me right out of Pharmacy School in 1968 and I practiced Pharmacy in the Army for 3 years. Practiced Pharmacy in San Antonio for a few years after military and then went back to get a MS in Health Care Administration in 1976. Healthcare Executive for 25 years in Texas and Florida. Retired in 2002. Now I am a landlord with 15 tenant families and 13 properties (8 over 100 years old) to look after ... and I can't get rid of them anytime soon.

Special Interests and/or Leisure Time Activities

Nancy and I had the opportunity to travel some. We presently are enamored and busy with our grandchildren (17 years old and 1 year old). We have 2 properties in the mountains of Northern New Mexico and spend a great deal of time there. I like to fish for trout, golf, and have done a lot of photography. Carrying on the family tradition, I have inherited a music/entertainment thing from my father and play guitar and sing at a local bar in downtown Pensacola every Thursday night. My stage name is Hog Van Dog. I sing for drinks and tips and pull in anywhere from 0 to $15 a night. Nancy likes to come and hear me and tells me I sound great, but my pay is probably a better reflection of the sound. I am also a member of a number of community boards ... some dealing with healthcare and some with downtown revitalization.

Message to Classmates

Growing up in Warsaw was incredible ... and I have stayed close to many of my friends from high school.
