Comments:

I attended Cleveland State University on a baseball scholarship. Graduated March 1973 with a degree in Physical Education wanting to teach and coach. Started working for the Boy Scouts of America in May of 1973.

Met Mary Jo on May 7, 1971 at Cleveland State University. That is a very interesting story for another time. We were engaged on June 5, 1971 and married December 11, 1971.

Here we are 49 years later with 2 adult daughters, 7 grandchildren and two great grandchildren. Our daughters are as different as night and day. Each grandchild has their own unique personality as well. Can’t wait to see how the “greats” grow.

I had a tremendous career with the Boy Scouts. I retired January 1, 2013

We have lived in Olmstead Falls, Maumee, Lakewood, and Berea, Ohio, Flower Mound, Texas, Wausau and Appleton, Wisconsin, Plainfield, Illinois, and Grand Rapids and Milford, Michigan. Chandler, AZ and now Parker, CO.

We have been active in the United Methodist Church including helping to start churches in Flower Mound, TX and Kentwood, MI. And now we enjoy non denomination churches.

The last few years I have enjoyed coaching youth football for my CO grandsons and serving as Chair of the Southeast Christian School board.

We moved in September of 2020 from the retirement home we built on almost 2 acres in 2012 to a city lot closer to doctors, dentists, etc.

School Story:

Playing on the baseball team was a highlight from high school.

Winning the Regional Finals vs. Shaker and then losing (unfortunately) in the Sectionals in a rain shortened game are lasting memories. Of course beating Midpark (and Ken Kravec) was a highlight.

What great baseball friendships! Dale Lubinski, Pete Sedello, Jim Gossett, Dale Searles, Bill Shannon, Tom Flaherty, Tom McLaughlin and Logan Donathan among others. Apologies to those team members I didn't mention. Coaches Virgil Stroya and Don Linn were great.

My favorite teachers were Mr. Gorsline, Miss Thompson and Mrs. Kerr. Thompson and Kerr sparked my interest in writing and journalism. I used the skills they taught me in my BSA career.

So many classmates had a positive influence on my life. It is great catching up with them on this site and on Facebook.

Happy birthday Linda! Hope you have a great birthday in this rapidly changing world! Stay safe!

We lived in Olmsted Falls for 6 years 1981-87 before moving to WI and enjoyed it a lot. It’s a great community with great schools.

Have a great birthday and a tremendous year. Stay safe.
