Comments:

I played 4 years of football at Duke University and graduated in 1975. After graduation I became an assistant football coach at Duke and at the University of Virginia. I received my Masters of Education during this period.
In 1981 I joined American Hospital Supply as a sales representative and began a career in Healthcare which has lasted 38 years - American Hospital Supply, Baxter Healthcare, Allegiance Healthcare and Cardinal Health. Really, because of mergers, acquisitions and spin-offs, the same company.
I work today with Salter Labs, a small medical device manufacturer owned by Roundtable Healthcare Partners, a private equity firm. Roundtable is owned by my former executive bosses at the above companies. This is the 3rd Roundtable owned company that I have worked for since leaving Cardinal in 2001.
Kim and I have moved to Dallas, Texas after 19 years in Scottsdale but we are moving back to Scottsdale as soon as we sell our place in Frisco. Now that all 3 girls are in Arizona that is where we want to be, at least 51% of the year.
We are looking forward to a final retirement in about 1 to 2 years and plan to split time between Scottsdale and Wilmington, NC.

School Story:

High School was a great time for me. I developed some wonderful friendships and started to learn a little about what life has in store for you. I parlayed high school athletic and academic success into a great college experience at Duke University. The Duke environment helped me to forge myself into the successful business person and family man that I am today. It was through Duke that I met my wife. Actually my wife, Kim, is the younger sister of my 4 year college roommate and Duke Football teammate, Mark Johnson. Both Mark and Kim graduated from Oxon Hill High School in Prince Georges County in 71 and 72 respectively.
Success is always built upon preparation, hard work and perseverance-- WJ provided a laboratory for me to hone those skills. For that opportunity I will always be grateful.
One regret that I have always had is not having had the opportunity to spend significant time in the DC/Maryland area. I have had to work to stay connected to my WJ experience and my good high school friends. Life, though as they say, goes on and we have had many great experiences living in numerous different places.

Sad news. As we all approach the 65 milestone we will begin to see more of these sad events. 

We should try to remember that all of us have come a long way and accomplished many things of which we can be proud. Certainly that can be said for Scott.

I did not know Al well but as a WJ Alumnus it is very sad to see this happen. Pancreatic Cancer is particularly virulent and very difficult to overcome. I have had several friends succumb to this insidious disease.

Condolences to Al's family.

Happy Birthday. Sorry to be 2 days late. Seattle is an interesting town and i bet you enjoy it. Lovely spot on the water, and especially nice when the sun is out.
My sophmore year at Duke we played the University of Washington in Seatlle. Never forgot seeing Mt. Rainer for the first time as we flew into SeaTac airport. They had a Quarterback named Sonny Sixkiller, a full blooded native American, who beat us in the last 2 minutes wih a 60 yard touchdown pass. Great trip though.
Hope that you are doing well. Hope to see you at the 50 year reunion.
All the Best,
Mark

Scott was a teammate of mine on the Walter Johnson basketball team. He was not the best player, nor was he the most talented, not by a long shot. However he always worked very hard and did a lot of what you would call, the "grunt work" - taking charges, diving for loose balls, etc. He was also a very personable guy and very likeable.

One always wonders why some people have their lives cut so short. Some would say it it is part of a "plan" but I am not sure that the planning filters down to that low a level. Sometimes people are just in the wrong place at the wrong time in a world of random events.

Bruce - nice to see the card and it provides a nice opportunity to remember Scott. These things help to keep memories alive and consequently those who have left us in our collective minds. Thank you for taking the time to share this with everyone.

Now Annual Dinner with my oldest friend, George Pratt, class of 1972. We look just about the same as we did in 3rd grade at Larchmont Elementary.
George, along with my other team mates, opened the holes that made me a star tailback. Thanks guys. You deserve the credit i just ran through the openings.
