|Hello to all of my classmates of '56.
WOW!! Time flies! Hard to believe we're 70 years old
or soon to be 70. (I really don't feel that old). Let's see if I can remember
how all this took place.
After leaving High school in 1956 I went into the
Marine Corps and while there married Betty Whitehead (class of '55). We
are about to celebrate 51 yrs. together. We produced 5 children, 3 boys
& 2 girls.
After the Marine Corps I went to work for Monsanto
and am now in my 47th year with them---yes I'm still working---but only
part-time at the agricultural bio tech research center. I continued my
education at night to finish my degree in 1968. I love what I do but will
probably retire in the next year or two. Betty and I live in St Charles
county on the same couple of acres we bought in 1969 and will most likely
spend the rest of our lives there.
I certainly hope that all have had as good a life
as I have been blessed with and good fortune will follow each and every
one of you.
