Spouse/Partner: Mary Jean Grant 54 yrs Dec 30th 1967
Occupation: Retired Truck driver, Drove a semi 45 yrs all 49 states and 6 Provinces Canada
Children: Jerry born 1962, Jeff born 1963, Cathy born 1966, where from my first marriage, Gregory born 1964, who More…I never met and never forgot was with a wonderful friend and he was adopted, Michele born 1968, Kevin born 1971, was with my current wife of Mary Jean of 49yrs and 2 months but who's counting... that's it folks....

I did not graduate with my class. I wasn't the best student, and after cutting 16 gym classes with Doug Patterson my best friend, we were suspended my Deke Walters... it was near the end of Nov 1958 and he suggest we try to find job's, and see just how hard it was without a High School diploma. Then we would be welcomed back in January.

He was right, no jobs, and Doug & I made plans to join the Air Force

School Story:

Why did we cut all those gym classes? We would drive to Fort Sheridan air strip as we knew a soldier who worked on air craft engines, and we found this fascinating, the hanger was so clean you could eat off the floors...the engines the same, and all the tools to do the job period was lunch so we could get back unnoticed... we figured we get a pass the next day, and the next...but every day was the same... we go back and hope to get a pass the next day to cover our AWOL, with time running out, pretty soon Mrs Laswell (sic) attendance office caught us, she sent us to see Deke Walter as Mr Panther was not there that day... we told him we had cut a few gym classes to go to Fort Sheridan and why... he gives us a pass to return to class....what a stroke of luck.... but first we had to go clear it with the attendances office... Mrs Laswell couldn't believe it... so she marches us back up to The principle's office and ask Deke what did these boys tell you, his answer... they cut a few classes cut DID NOT match hers(16) that's when "he suggested" we try to find job's,and see how hard it was, without a High School diploma and the rest is history

Hi Mary
Lost contact with you after emailing you on classmates. Hope life is treating you good... I still have a crush on you after all these years...I married a gal from Chicago in 1967 and this Dec 30th it will be 50 happily married years... I not sure how you knew Jim Beckman if it was your husband that worked with him? I keep in touch with his sister Marge if you remember her? She and her husband live in Missouri....I'm happy to have found this site and your picture brought a smile to my face... showed to my wife Mary Jean and she said I had great taste in woman :-)
