October 14, 1953 Oak Park IL Agent Provacateur Single
With a Comparative Literature BA from Columbia University earned in very late youth I’ve had time to experience high and low culture, 21 years living in New York City, from ballet studies through 17th century poetry, to salt water sailboat regattas and sports car racing, with unlikely friendships, volunteerism at Greenwich concours, Kips Bay showcase house, and most significantly at Ground Zero during the horrific week of 9/11/2001, with more than 30 solo trips to Europe, rewarding if inconstant work as a product marketing manager, then Business Process Analyst mercenary against the shadows of perfidy and mendacity, writing and counseling for companies such as GE, Bank of America, and Solo Cup, a key member of the team that created hoopla—a cloud-based mobile application for Books, CD’s, DVD’s for the Public Library Consumer (more than One Million Users so far); a foot soldier against the idiopathic but bespoke disease of Parkinson’s, on good days with vain denial and coy excuse I call myself a (very) minor public intellectual, on bad days an under-employed coffee house knowledge postulant.  I’m a vegetarian 39 years, I’ve long-since quit drinking alcohol and smoking street drugs (31.5 years), I’ve been a serial monogamist, privileged and always curious.

December 10, 1951 St Charles IL Owner Valley Virtual Assistant & Exec Asst. @ insurance company valleyvirtualassistant.com Divorced 2
The short version of the last forty years.  Three semesters at NIU then to work as a secretary in Chicago. Married for twenty years, divorced, two children.  Now Kristen (31) is in Salt Lake City and Justin (27)still in this area, engaged and gave me my first little grandaughter, Madison.  I continue to be in the administrative profession with only my second employer.  More importantly, I've started my own business as a virtual assistant and hope to carry this into retirement.  Looking forward to leaving the snow belt during retirement.  Still see Sammy (Carolyn) Cotsworth and Robbie Brown from our class.  Some friendships are forever.  Look forward to seeing you all later this year.

July 01, 1952 Genoa IL semi retired Married 4
I love this crazy,tragic, sometimes almost magic, awful, beautiful life.
Lost the sight in my right eye working on my car in June 1971. This changed my life for the better, I found out. Floated around aimlesly until 1973 when I got a job at a Porsche Audi dealer. Got married in 1974 and moved to Lisle. 1974 energy crisis hit and was put on night shift so I went to work at a VW dealer on the day shift.
Then to a Chevy Olds dealer. Then I decieded enough with being a mechanic.
Found a job as a machinist, found much more personal satifaction making parts than repairing somebody else's car.
Bought my first house in Bolingbrook in 1978. 1979 changed jobs again and bought my first Porsche 356. It was too rusted so I sold it for parts and bought my next one. Spent 3 years as a production machinist and then was transferred to the R&D Dept. where I tested converyor belt fasteners. I invented a method for cutting strained steel cable and have a patent with my name on it. 1986 moved to Oswego. 1987 daughter Ashley was born. 1989 wife files for divorce. Guess I was spending to much time restoring my Porsche. Moved back to mom's house during my divorce. Met wife #2 in 1990 and moved to Lombard and got married again. Moved to Wauconda in 1991 and changed jobs to be closer to home. 1995 started my WWII reenacting.
Moved to Sycamore in 2001 and then divorced for the second time in 2006 and remarried right away to right one this time. Deb is a newspaper editor in Sandwich Illinois and freelance writer for a farm paper. Deb grew up on a dairy farm in central Illinois. I have 3 wonderful step kids. Jessica is 15 and a sophomore high school this year. Andrew is 20 and in the Army. He is in Afghanistan now as EOD  (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) Tech. Guess my WWII inert ordnance collection had something to do with that. My third step kid is Katie 23 and has a daughter Emily who is 2 1/2.
What a joy a grandchild is.
That's my crazy,tragic,Sometimes almost magic,Awful,beautful life.

April 05, 1952 Perry MI just a biologist Married
After OPRF, I got a BS in Biology-U of IL and a MS in Wildlife-U of WI.  I met my wife Therese on the north slope of Alaska.  Had a string of temp jobs in MI prior to converting to my current position with a small, yet inept federal natural resources agency.  Have recently entered their pre-retirement training program.  For most of my career I've been involved in monitoring the health of bald eagles and colonial waterbirds in MI.  More recently, work has taken me farther afield and international.  I worked the BP oil spill in LA this summer, and just recently returned from a flamingo project in South Africa.

Hi all, I'm sorry to have missed the reunion. I was back in the midwest twice this year celebrating my mom's 90th birthday, so couldn't make it a 3rd time.  I'm happy, living in beautiful Ashland, Oregon, running the local library, hiking in the hills and mountains nearby. I have 4 kids, (2 are stepchildren), who are 23, 24,25,and 26, made for interesting high school years. Graduated from Knox College in Asian Studies, got a masters in library science at U of Ill, worked in Chicago, Colorado and the last 25 years in southern Oregon. Married, divorced, remarried, life is good.  The photo is from my step daughter's wedding this summer.  Always an individual, she wore yellow.
