Comments:

I went to school in Vale from the 1st grade through my junior year then graduated from Pendleton High in 1960

I served an LDS mission from November of 1962 to November of 1964 in the Southern States Mission which took in Alabama, South Carolina, and almost all of Georgia.

MBA from BYU in 1969

I worked for Exxon in Houston in 1969, for myself in Eugene OR in 1975, for Combustion Engineering in Hartford CT in 1978, for Washington Mutual Bank in Seattle in 1985, for Raineer Bank in Seattle in 1987, and for myself since 1991

I still design and develop computer software for myself then try to sell it on the Internet. My latest system is at www.repprospector.com

Since 2005 my wife and I have served a 6-hour shift every Friday morning in the LDS Seattle Temple. We currently teach the 11-year olds in Primary and are jointly the 11-year old scout leaders in the Shoultes ward in Marysville, WA

My Brother Richard has two children and has lived in the Hartford CT area since the early 1970s.

Retirement activity:

Golf weekly year-round with my favorite foursome,
Bowling every Wednesday night with 2 of my sons,
Fishing - I caught 27 salmon in October of 2011 fishing from the bank of the Skagit river in Mt. Vernon, WA
Hiking - usually to go fishing or mushroom hunting, but I take occasional long backpacking trips with my sons - my last long one was 2 years ago and I expect to go on another in August, 2012
Mushroom Hunting with my son Larry who is an expert - don't go without an expert!

Update June 5, 2018:

I wrote some software in 1995 which has sold thousands of copies. I am in the process of making necessary updates so my software will run on Windows 8 and 10. I had decided long ago to just let my software die a quiet death as demand decreased greatly over time. I recently learned of a large untapped market for my software and decided to resurrect it. I am working on it now. I discovered the upgrade would be easy and should be finished sometime this month. The newly discovered market will be easy to contact on Linkedin. I am very busily "retired" and am finding very little time for this software project, but fortunately it is a small project with large potential.

I have been walking 5 miles every day for over 5 years. My wife and I are in very good health for 76-year-olds. We take no prescription drugs and seldom see the inside of a doctor's office.

We are very active in the LDS (Mormon) church. We serve in the Seattle Temple on Friday mornings. I was recently released as High Priest Group Leader and am now serving as ward mission leader. MarJean is a ward missionary and works closely with me in everything I do in the church. I seldom find more than an hour a day to work on my software.

I no longer golf, bowl, hike, or fish because I have more important things to do and just can't find the time. But whether it be long or short, we are happily looking forward to the future with as much, or more, joyful anticipation as when we were young. We hope all of you are doing the same.
