Yes! Attending Reunion

I went into the Air Force the day after President Kennedy was assassinated, and when I got out in '67 went to work for Eastern Airlines and began attending MDJC. I got married to my wife Penny in 1970, and when I graduated from MDJC we moved to New Hampshire in 1972, and we still live here. I graduated from the University of New Hampshire in 1974, and I retired from teaching 4th and 5th grades in 2004. I'm an avid bicyclist and motorcyclist and I build cafe racer style motorcycles as a hobby. I own 3 motorcycles, all over 20 years old, and I ride one of them every day. I've also been a ski instructor for the past 30 years, starting my career at Waterville Valley here in NH, and now spend the winters in Colorado, where both my daughters live, and where I currently work in the Copper Mountain Ski School, primarily with the "over The Hill Gang."

School Story:

Just those (coed) bus trips to the swim meets! (What happened on the back of the bus stayed on the bus!)

What's your favorite memory of HHS

Hialeah High is where I learned to love school. Prior to that I just went because I was required to, but at HHS I began to enjoy the learning process.

What did you always want to do that you haven't done yet?

Become a pilot, but there's still time!

What would we be surprised to know about you?

I've already mentioned the most surprising thing, I think; that I've become a Winter junkie! I love the snow, and the mountains!
