Graduated from U of M in 1965 in Civil Engineering, Worked for Douglas Aircraft in Long Beach California in 1966. Worked for MN/DOT from 1967 thru 1980. Managed DNR Engineering office from 1980 until retiring in 2000. Married Marie Thill(class of 64) in 1967. All seven of our children are 13 year Aggies. Held various volunteer positions at St Agnes and am currently responsible for the Parish Archives and help maintain the Parish facility infrastructure. Have two artificial hips of which one recently was worn out and rebuilt. Been busy also with 11 grandchildren and maintaining lake property with 3 cabins West of Itasca Park. Also been playing tennis and handball since college days. Mike Fitzgerald is one of my tennis partners. Belong to a card club with John Heller and Don Krieger which has been going for 30 years.
Only thing new from me is I was diagnosed with Parkinson in 1974. Trying to cope with that. Did get inducted into the St Agnes athletic ball of fame.

School Story:

Had fun with Sister Alex in history class. She got mad at me for fooling around and told me to take over the class. She left the room and I sat at her desk and continued the class. I could see her thru the door window laughing. Only lasted about 5 minutes. Had to stay after school and clean her room. She left me alone again and I attempted to escape by going out the window and across the roof of the gym to a classroom on the other side. She came back as I was crossing the roof. Thought she was going to have a heart attack. Once back in the room we had a good laugh. Also remember throwing a naked Tom Spies out of the locker room into the hall. Funny to everyone but Tom. Luckily hall was vacant.
