Managing Principal Consultant www.greenglobalresources.com Committed Relationship 2
Ok, so in just a few words - life is a joy when play is work and work is play. I have a wonderful partner, Ivan, and 3 grandchildren, one - Lilly, who is a precocious 5 and a half and lives with me fulltime - a true joy.  I also love my work - Organizational Development Consulting - which offers fulfillment and yes, income,  that continues to engage.  In fact, I may never retire!  Who could ask for more?  My other interests have been showing in working cowhorse AQHA and NRCHA shows in California, Arizona and Nevada (did I ever tell you I really only wanted to be a cowgirl when I grew up?), and living in an equestiran community where I get to ride out on the trails, enjoy friendships in the local horse club, not to mention sample the local wine and cuisine of the gold country of California.  Having lived all over the state - from Santa Barbara, West LA, Ventura County, to the Bay Area, and now the Sierra Foothills - I can think of only one other state that compares - Oregon!  I look forward to your update and those of other Axemen at the 50th - did I say 50th - high school reunion! Let's give 'em the Axe, where? Right in the neck, the neck, the neck, there! Live long and prosper! Send Jennifer a MessageSend Jennifer a Message

Retired Committed Relationship 2
I've been retired for 8 wonderful years. I moved from Portland to Glendale, AZ just over a year ago. Since retiring, I have done some travelling. I went to Paris with my daughter; I went on a cruise to the Meexican Riviera with my sister and her daughter and family; I've been on other cruises (to Spain, London, Panama Canal, Hawaii, tht Carriben, and most recently a 39 day cruise from Sydney Australia to San Diego, CA) with friends and family and as a solo traveller. I spent a month in Thailand a few years ago, to attend a reunion of the International School, Bangkok.
I love Arizona. I moved here because I have a 21 year old granddaughter who needs a kidney transplant and many other reasons. Any other Axemen in the Phoenix area?

I decided to serve my country just before graduation. Almost as soon as the ink was dry on my diploma I was off to Ft. Lewis for basic training. My specialty was Hawk Missle System Radar Repairman. I spent 1 1/2 years in South Korea on the DMZ repairing and maintaining radar equipment that was critical to detecting North Korean forces.
After returning to Eugene after being discharged, I did a few odd jobs, but then found my calling working in the foreign auto parts industry. Working as a counterman, then store asst. mgr., then store manger for a few years gave me a huge amount of knowledge not only in the industry but also in business in general. I was promoted several times within the company and was transferred to Seattle for a year then back to Eugene for a couple of yrs.then to L.A. for 5 yrs. where I worked in several positions in the administrative end of things. Back to Portland for 18 yrs.and then back to Washington until 2010.

I met my wife Bev by selling her car parts that she needed to repair her car. As of this coming December, we will have been married for 40 yrs. We have 3 great kids. Jayson, who is also a salesman in the electrical field in Portland, is married and they have no children. Our daughter Katie is also married ..she is a high school math teacher, her husband is a band teacher in Salem and they have one (7). Our youngest daughter Erin is married and is a very dedicated stay at home mom to 3 kids, but in the last couple of years has taken up event planning and because of her skills, that company has been voted the best wedding planners in Boise. Her husband is a Sales Mgr. for Ferguson.

I reluctantlly retired in 2010 after my third open heart surgery (due to a condition much too involved to explain here). I can say that exposure to Agent Orange in Korea is the culprit. Getting VA to admit it is another story. 
My final position before retirement was phone sales for an import car parts distributor in Kirkland Wa. 

We now live in a great house within 5 blocks of my childhood home in South Eugene. 
I have developed cooking and gardening skills in my old age, which not only surprised my wife, but me as well. I love my greenhouse and am really enjoying trying new crops each season. Life has been full of interesting experiences and meeting some wonderful people along the way. So glad to be back in town.
