Proud grandmother of 12, great grandmother of 7.  Trying to keep in touch with ladies of Class of 60, 61 and 62.  We’ve been getting together at a horse farm every year since 2012 and enjoying it very much.  COVID kicked it to the curb this year.  We usually try to do it the last weekend in April each year.  Sandie Machnick and Pete Todd host a similar group at their Massanutten Resort home each year also.  Life is good and I send love and good wishes to all of our Lee Lancers.  Am disappointed by the recent school name change, but I don’t live in Fairfax County any longer, so I have no input – but nobody else did either.   Anyway, love to all!  Inez

After high school, I graduated from the University of Arizona in 1964. Met my husband, Cliff, in physical chemistry where we were lab partners. We did post grad work at the University of Washington, Seattle, (Master of Library Science in 1970) and subsequently lived in Manhattan Ks (Kansas State University), West Lafayette IN (Purdue University- Master of Science, Management) and for twenty years in Miamisburg Ohio (managed a library for US Industrial Chemicals Co.) In 1996, Cliff was transferred to Los Alamos National Lab and we've been living in beautiful northern New Mexico since. It's a dream come true for me.

Zero kids, but 3 cats and a dog (all the county will allow without a kennel licence!) I've worked as a chemist, a technical librarian, and am currently a self employed "fiber artist", selling work at local galleries.

My sisters and brothers (six of them as classmates may recall) live mainly in Maryland and Pa. My DH is retiring next June. We plan to remain here and travel as time and opportunity permits. So far it has been a good life.

Feel free to contact me via email--I don't answer the phone unless I recognize the number.

I live between Santa Fe and Albuquerque, NM. I have 2 daughters, a son-in-law, 4 grandchildren over 20 and 2 under 13. With the exception of 1 grandson, all of us live in NM. I travel every year to somewhere exotic; Tibet, India, Japan, Greece, Turkey, etc. 

Since leaving Lee I've lived in the Far East, Europe, and Mexico. I earned degrees in nursing and elementary education. I spent 5 1/2 years as a Municipal Court Judge and now that I'm retired I volunteer as a Court appointed Mediator. 

I'm a widow but my little castle up on the mesa holds not only myself but 3 wonderful gatos (cats). I was looking for Mary Ann Pennington when I happened upon this website. 

Science is right about short and long term memory. I'm too busy to remember what I ate for breakfast yesterday but I remember many of my classmates. Wish many more would find this site and join it!

I did 2 years at the University of Missouri, trying to understand the Midwest, then finished my BA in'67 working my way thru George Washington U, clerking at the Peace Corps.  Got into computers on the job, and loved them.  They took me to the Apollo project in Houston, Wall Street for 12 years in NYC, and finally back to DC.  Got outsourced from my Alma Mater in '90, and decided to sit out the recession in grad school, getting my MBA, and meanwhile helping organize Lee '61's 30th (and only) class reunion.

I took to heart that old saw "You never wish on your deathbed that you spent more time at the office", and decided to have a family in spite of being single.  Adopted a great 3-year old from Russia in '93.  Went back last year for a little sister.  Sveta (short for Svetlana) is 9 now and entering 3rd grade.  Tanya is 6 and starting first grade.  Living on my investments and COBRA and playing stay-at-home mom.  If I can find health insurance next spring, I'll be officially retired. Otherwise it's back to the work force just in time for the Y2K bug (that has to be a gag - We've been programming for it since the 1970's).  I'll see you at the reunion if I can find a babysitter.  Otherwise, I'd love to hear from anyone who remembers me.

Shortly after graduating from Lee, I entered West Point, graduated four years later and was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the Army.  I was an armored cav platoon leader in Korea and a combat engineer company commander in Viet Nam.  Three years after getting my masters in engineering at Purdue, I resigned from the army with 10 years service.  I'm a registered civil engineer and, since 1975, I've been working in the construction industry.  Along the way, I worked for two different Arab companies in the Middle East for about 10 years on a variety of interesting projects, including several large turnkey power/desalination plants and emergency bomb-damage repair of Kuwait's roads and airfields right after the Gulf War.  As a contractor, I've also been involved in major lock and dam construction as well as US military family housing projects in Germany and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.  Presently, I make my living as a construction consultant working for bonding companies.  

In January 1967, I married Rose Ann McDermitt and we have been happily married ever since.  We have raised a great family of nine children (four boys and five girls, in that order) and are now patiently waiting for them to produce some grandchildren.  One of my best friends at Lee was Woodie Parker but we lost touch soon after high school.  (I was very sorry to see Woodie's name listed at the Lancer Memorial site.) Another good high school friend I've lost touch with is Richard Ascoli.  Last I heard, Richard was in the Peace Corps in India – but that was about 40 years ago!

I am the Joan Tanner who played in the Orchestra. After high school I went to Gainesville Fl. and worked as an LPN. I intended to become and RN, but fate, in the form of the man of my dreams, intervened. I met and married Charles Mathis, III, and we had two children, bought a Mazda/VW dealership, moved to Ocala, and settled down. We eventually sold the dealership and I went to nursing school at the University of Florida, graduating in 1997. I have worked at Shands at the U.F., the health department and for Children's Medical Services. We moved to St. Augustine (as near as you can get to heaven!!) in 2006 and we live on Anastasia Island in a 90 year old log cabin that was once a restaurant. I still work as a nurse at the school for the deaf and the blind-a true calling!!! I always wonder about Mary Beth Pye, Ronald Boynkin, Suzie Nelson, and Bobby Wolfe (my soul-mate in high school). My passions are biking, walking my dogs (Weimeranner and Rottweiler) and visiting my two children, Charles IV and Torrie.

After graduation in 1961, I joined the Navy for 11 years, during that time I married Janet Mankin (Class of '62.) We parted way after 5 years and two children, Laura Elizabeth Allen and Mark Edward Allen. Mark has presented me with three grandchildren 1 boy and 2 girls. 

I left the Navy in 1972 and joined the U.S. Secret Service and spent 8 years protecting the President and the White House. In 1980 I was offered the opportunity to move from the USSS and join the Ushers Office in the Executive Resident (That's the big house in the center of the White House complex - the real White House) There I served five of the last six presidents and their families-( I missed Obama)-as one of the Ushers. 

An Usher is like the general manager of a hotel, we are in charge of everything that takes place inside of the black fence at the WH, from getting the President up to putting him to bed. I retired in May of 2004 after 43 years in the Federal Government. I am now located in Bedford, Pa. with my wife Marilyn Roble Allen, from Swickley, PA. We have been together for 25 years now and are still happy with each other. 

We have an old house built in 1876 and have lots of room. Anyone wishing to visit is welcome. Please E-mail if you are interested in corresponding or visiting.

Hope to hear from you soon, 

Skip Allen

Eldest grandson graduating high school this spring, yikes! Didn't WE just do that?!


Following Lee I worked for the government in D.C.  There met and married GWU law student.  1965 we left D.C. headed for Texas with three month old son in a VW Beetle.  In '65  it was an experience driving trough the south, a young white couple with Maryland license plates. Have lived in the Houston area since then. Three adult children, 2 boys and 1 girl.  I named our daughter "Dana" after our classmate, Dana, whom I so admired.  I have tried to find her but was told she had died; I wish she could have known.  If anyone knows the family of our 1961 Dana please share this with them. 


All of our three children are  attorneys, four grandchildren ages 17-7.  Our Dana presently lives in Mongolia (of all places!).  Me: late bloomer, entered college with youngest child in grade school.  Bachelors in Social Work, involved in community organization and started Domestic Violence intervention at District Attorneys Office (1984). graduate school for my Master of Social Work followed by a Fellowship.  Employed in a not-for-profit agency for several years. Opened private practice in 1993, treating children, couples and families.   Closed practice in 2005 due to serious health issues for husband. Bob called me "Nurse Ratchet" for several years and, thankfully, he is now in excellent health.


Interests:  family, friends, avid gardener, piddling acrylic artist, traveling, kayaking, and Purple Martin landlord. Married 50 years in December; life is good!

During my senior year at R.E. Lee (and the summer after), I worked at Lynch Construction in the Springfield Shopping Center.  Afterwards, I married and had one son (who later gave me a grandson now 25).  I worked at GSA in Springfield, and then for the Navy Dept (BUPERS) for a short time.  I divorced and remarried in 1969. My husband and I lived in Montgomery County, Maryland for over 2 decades and Howard County, Maryland for 13 years.  In our younger days we loved boating, fishing, camping, archery, sightseeing and traveling.  I was a Property Manager for 35 years working mostly for Grady Management and Dreyfuss Brothers, Inc./  Dreyfuss Management in the Metro area; I retired in 2000.  My husband passed away in 2007.   We had been married for 38 yrs.  I have truly been blessed with a good life.

Social workers changed the VA counseling credentials required after the boss promised mine were good. I needed to de-stress so I headed for the beaches west of Tampa & bought a little mobile home that is just fine for me. I got a VA pension as well as the AF one, so I didn't need the VA job after all. When I get caught up, I plan to teach at the community college around the corner from me! For FUN! ;-)

Married very short time - 1 daughter, 1 great son-in-law, 2 granddaughters, 1 very new grandson. Spent most of my adult life in business for myself, telephone answering service, real estate, custom boat canvas and interiors (loved that).

Spent the better part of the last 20 years in boating (love that too) cruising the Potomac & Chesapeake.

Really looking forward to seeing the gang again.

I retired from the FAA in 2001. Met and married a Canadian girl, Brenda. I gained a son and daughter and four grandchildren. We took off in a motor home and traveled full time for nearly 3 years. This past summer, 2005, we sold our home in NC and bought a small house in Brenda's home town. I will soon become a permanent resident of Canada. I really enjoy living here, as long as I can escape the cold and snow (I still have the motor home!). Summers are perfect!

I'd enjoy hearing from all my old friends.

Bob LeBosquet (also Class of 1962) and I went off to college, he to University of Vermont and I to Shenadoah University.  Bob found Vermont too far away from me though and returned home to George Mason University.  We married and have one daughter, now married and in San Francisco. 

To my great sorrow, Bob died in 1971 and I picked up the pieces and raised Kim alone.   My career ended several years ago when injuries from auto accidents left me with a non-user friendly body.  So now I'm basically just a grandma wannabe with too much time on my hands. 

I remain in the DC area and would like to help organize a 40th reunion next year.   Anyone interested?

Left Springfield area for southern Florida in July 63.  I found myself joining the Army in August.  Basic in Ft. Jackson SC then on to US Army Proving Grounds Aberdeen, MD.  Like most Americans we were all left with permanent marks with the killing of John Kennedy.  I was in DC for the whole weekend and I shall never forget what I saw and heard.  Overseas duty in Germany in the Kassel area (Rothwesten) from Jan. '64 to Jul '66.  I met my future wife in Hialeah while on Christmas leave in Dec '63.  I came to Syracuse after discharge and have remained here ever since.  Married in Apr '67 and five children followed.  We separated in Aug '84 and divorce was final in Mar 87.  I am still "single" with two grandsons 6 and 9 years old.  I love them greatly.  If any one from the class see this please go to the message board and see my first message and please respond to the "40th Class Reunion" message posted.  It will really be great to get together once again (this will be my first attendance at a reunion). God bless everyone and here's hoping that we can all make that happen later next year.  May everyone have a most blessed holiday season.

After  Graduation, I went to work in Washington D.C., at The First Bank of Washington as a teller, Married a boy from New York in 1963. He had been married before and had two sons, ages 2 and 3. We had for girls and adopted a baby boy when he was 3 days old. My husband sold mobile Homes and later he became partners in the business. We moved from Springfield in 63 to Marlow heights Md. then to Upper Marlboro MD. to Servern Park Md. to Pa. He was opening sale lot and had to move to the areas and get them started. I didn't have to work except for the company as a Secretary to my husband. I was married 20 years and got a divorce in 1983. went to school and became a Chef, and cooked until 2000, that is when I changed careers and became a Detective and love it.

I really didn't get to know to many of our class mates because there was a group of us that came from Annandale High and I was one of them.

I have 4 grand daughter, 2 great grand sons and a great grand daughter. I am remarried and keep my maiden name. Am happier now then I ever was, NO WORRIES. 

Hope everyone has fun at the reunion and all the luck to everyone.

In the fall of 1962, I went off to Mary Washington College in Fredericksburg, where I roomed with Marjorie (Midge) Meredith, also from our class. After graduating, I worked for a law publishing firm until I married Mike Ellis,'62.

Mike was a Naval officer and I went with him from duty station to duty station. We had two children, Scott and Amy.
I took Montessori training and worked for the local elementary school district until I was diagnosed with myasthenia gravis, a rare autoimmune disease, in 1981.

Mike and I subsequently divorced and I adjusted to an early forced retirement due to my health. Today, I live in a suburb of San Diego, close to my two children and my little granddaughter. I make whole cloth baby quilts of reproduction vintage fabric, which seem to appeal to boomer grandfolks and young parents alike!

After Lee High School, I attended Virginia Tech and earned a BS in Civil Engineering in 1967. I've been married, divorced and have been married to Marion for the last 20 years. I have a son, Chris, by my first marriage.

I've been employed as a structural engineer and project manager for the D.C. Department of Transportation for the last 36 years. When you drive over Sousa Bridge, think of me. Someday I might retire, but not anytime soon.

We have taken many trips out west and prefer the Grand Canyon to Disneyland any day. We survived the hike down to Phantom Ranch, but the return trip the next day was murder!

Hope to hear from you soon.

Left Springfield in 1962 for California. Attended San Diego State for one semester then went to work for the Federal Government (6 years) and IBM (6 years). Married a great guy with two kids from a previous marriage and then we had one daughter who is now 29 years old and single working for Google. I spent 15 years working in the administration of Los Gatos Christian School before retiring in 1998. Did all the usual Mom type things; and now I wonder how I ever had time to accomplish anything. I thought retirement would be R&R! HA. The days go by faster and faster.

Lee HS will always be in my heart as a wonderful time in my life. I remember many of my buddies there but have definitely lost contact with all of them: Diana Cagle, Di Stratton, Carol J. and so many others. It was a great time and I hope all of you are doing well.

I've never lived anywhere but California since 1962 but so much of my heart is full of HS memories; of Springfield (and Annandale) Virginia. GO LANCERS!!

Following graduation from Lee in 1962, I attended Florida State University, earned a degree in biology, a commission in the USAF and married Roslyn. 

I obtained a delay from active duty and earned my Doctor of optometry degree from the Southern College of Optometry in Memphis Tennessee. I returned to active duty in the USAF and served as a clinical optometrist at the USAF Medical Center in Biloxi, Mississippi. During our four years in Biloxi our two sons, Kevin and Brian were born. 

I left active duty in 1974 and moved to Florida to start my private practice but stayed in the active reserve for another twenty three years. Life has been great, still married to Roz, boys are very successful (banking executive and an airline pilot), two beautiful grand daughters (Kendyll and Lauren) who I truly adore. I Enjoy boating, offshore fishing, flying, FSU football, traveling and being a great grandpa. 

I survived two operations for benign brain tumors but still going strong and no limitations. I may think about retiring in a year or two but still enjoy what I do so not in a big hurry. 

I've corresponded with a few of our class since our first reunion. Still looking for my good friend Harry Leland but no one seems to know his whereabouts.

After graduating, I attended schools in San Bernardino and Fresno, CA. In 1965 I married Ron Merritt (34 years next March!) He started working for Continental Airlines in 1966. We have lived in Long Beach and Simi Valley, CA. Denver, CO. El Paso, TX. and now NC.

We have three daughters...Jennifer, 32, who graduated from St. Marys College with an English married to Chris, an Air Force Captain and RN and is stationed in Turkey. Rebecca, 30, lives in Denver with our five grand-children and Kristi, 22, who transferred from the University of Texas to the University of North Carolina last year. She is living at home and is also an English major.

I have worked in retail management in shops that cater to the larger woman. Now I do volunteer work and am an avid collector of antiques. We travel when we can and are planning a trip to Turkey next year. Ron had triple by-pass last year but is doing very well.

We are both looking forward to retiring and moving to New Mexico. Has been fun to see names that I recognize (although I wish more '63'ers had responded). You all take care and God bless every single one of you...

After a 3 year courtship, 10 days after graduation, I married Roy Craig on June 22, 1963. We will celebrate our 50th Anniversary as we celebrate our 50th Reunion.


We have three children, Rob Michael who married Deborah Warren and they had 3 children, a daughter, Julia Allison born in 1999; 2 sons, Mason William born in 2001 and Brian Matthew born in 2003; Nina Wenona who married Jean-Yves (John) Jean who have 2 daughters, Rachel Nicole born in 2004 and Lindsey Rene born in 2000; April Michele married Dean Black, but sadly they have recently been divorced.


Roy worked in electronics (aircraft radar & guidance; computers, etc.); I worked for the US Government until 2 weeks before Rob was born & was a stay at home for 14 years; then at Satellite Business Systems; and went to IBM for the remainder of my working career.  In October 1991, I had to go on disability or die, so I chose life.


In October 2009, we moved back into our home in Fairfax Station after a major renovation and addition.  Our growing family needed a place large enough for all of us without falling over each other during holidays and special occasions.


I would love to hear from or visit with any of my classmates, we live a couple blocks off the Fairfax County Parkway, at Rt. 123, Ox Road.  You may email, call my home phone number, or my cell phone at 703-201-3656.


God Bless you and all our troops!!

 I left Lee after my sophomore year when my Dad got
transferred to Hawaii. Except for graduating high school in La
Jolla, California, attending the University of Hawaii, and doing the stewardess thing for TWA, I spent most of my time living in Maui, Hawaii.  Came back to California in the 80's and moved to San Antonio in 1990.

Very happily married, two kids, daughter is married and one
grandchild on the way, finally. My son has set a date to marry next fall.  We've got our fingers crossed.  He's 34 and has come close before. We're hoping to retire in the next few years.  My husband is originally from Houston, but we met in Hawaii.

Having a computer and being able to dig up all these old memories is great stuff.

I graduated from William and Mary in 1967. At W & M, I met Ricki, a gorgeous and wonderful lady. We have been married for almost 41 years. Ricki and I have three adult children and four grandchildren. I taught history and coached football, track and field, and baseball for eight years in Alexandria and in Fairfax County at W.T. Woodson High School before transferring in 1975 to Naples High School in beautiful Naples, Florida to do more of the same. On the side, I received a Masters Degree in 1979 from the University of South Florida and soon thereafter entered the world of school administration where I remained until June of 1993. That year, I chose to reenter the classroom to resume my love of teaching and coaching. In August of 2006, after serving thirty - nine years in public education, I decided to retire. Since then, to help me maintain my wits and a little adrenalin flow, I coach track and field and serve on the football staff at Naples High.

It's gone so fast and now we're 60 and God knows what else. As for me, San Diego has been home most of the years. Also lived in Florida, upstate NY, and Australia - all as a result of work assignments in engineering and management. My wife (Kathy) of 36 years recently passed away after a long, tough battle with breast cancer. She gave me 4 beautiful daughters who have been providing me with the joy of grandchildren and the prospects of many more to come. I'm currently working as an independent consultant in residential development and construction, primarily in the So Cal area and will probably do so until retirement at 66, or sooner if I get lucky. In retrospect Lee was a great school with quality teachers and classmates. Wish we could do it all again (well, maybe only some of it)!

Following high school, I went to The Univ. of North Texas and earned a BS in Sec. Ed. and Geography. I joined the Air Force in 1968, and graduated from pilot training in 1969. Spending most of 1970 through 1973 in Viet Nam, Thailand Okinawa and Taiwan, I earned the Distinguished Flying Cross and three Air Medals. During that time I was flying KC-135A Stratotankers (a 4 engine jet). At the end of the war, I decided to remain in the military and retired after serving 23 yrs, 2 mos, & 7days protecting you guys:-)) Oh, I also earned a Masters and played lots of golf with Generals. I married Sharon in 1970 and we're about to celebrate our 36th anniversary. I enjoy running and land lording 295 Purple Martin pairs each year. I'm a volunteer at the school where Sharon teaches middle school and I teach sex ed to 5th grade boys and Texas history to 4th graders. I recently had the pleasure of talking to Dick and Zanne Jefferies/LHS '63.

Hello. I went to VPI in the fall of ’63 in the Corps of Cadets. I graduated (late, but graduated) in ’68 with a BS in physics. Went in the Army that summer, received a commission the next summer; went to Vietnam in ’70 (survived). Worked around computers and the Beltway for a career. Spent time with IBM in Boca Raton (very close to heaven) and retired from Perot’s EDS (not all that close). Moved to the country, ate some peaches, found deism on my own. I now volunteer at the Appomattox Courthouse National Park as a history ‘interpreter’. First dated current wife 6 June 1973. Got married on top of Sugarloaf Mountain in Maryland on a snowy day in February 1975. It has been all down hill since.

After my third marriage and divorce I finally realized that single life is best for me. I am now working for a small electrical contractor (aprox. 50 employees) as Office Manager, Accounting Supervisor and HR. When I started with them 19-years ago we had only 7 people. I love Charleston and can't imagine living anywhere else. My daughter her husband and three grandchildren live here also.

I really enjoyed being President of RE Lee Chess Club during that 1962/63 winning season, when the football team got whipped so often.

The week after graduation, joined the Army, but after training in US and Germany, I declined to reenlist for Vietnam.

Instead, worked my way through GMU. I really enjoyed working summers on the crew that built bridges over I95 at Springfield and selling music and instruments in winters at Klein Dept Store, then researching Riverine Operations and ASW at a Navy think tank. I also learned at last how to talk with girls.

Rejoined the Army as a Civilian and worked my way up through many interesting assignments in financial management of appropriations for Military Construction and Housing in The Corps of Engineers and the Army Comptroller's Office.

Retired in 05 to join Agriculture Dept, enjoy being a consultant in IT cost management.

I also really enjoy working with Falls Church Lions Club charities, and Boy Scouts with my sons.

This week I am joining my sister Margaret at the reunion. Hope to meet Wayne, and Toshiko, and Rick and Gordon and that girl who lived just off Backlick Road.

I then returned to the DC area & spent the next 15 years consulting with physician practices nationwide. I retired in 1998 & moved back to SE Virginia where I was born & have Family. I spend my time volunteering, including tutoring in a local Inter-city high school, with the Friends of the Library, a tax preparer with AARP & other organizations.

Following graduation in 1963 I went back "home" to Texas and attended North Texas State Univ. in Denton. Fellow classmate Tony Fredrickson joined me on this adventure, which started with a lengthy bus ride from DC to Dallas then a short ride to Denton. School was less interesting than parties and the fraternity - Phi Kappa Sigma - and I was bounced in mid '67 for grades. We all remember the mid '60's when anyone able to breath and available was put into uniform and sent across the pond. I was not forgotten by my friends at the Selective Service office in Fairfax. Mid January of '68 I was re-classified 1-A, mid February of '68 I was in Richmond for a physical and in on March 16, 1968 I was back in Richmond with my hand raised taking some oath or something, then hustled onto a train for Ft. Jackson, SC. After almost a year of training at Ft. Devans, MA to be a spy with the Army Security Agency I was ready to ship out to Vietnam after a brief month of additional training in Petaluma, CA. Before departing the country, I married Becky Lowe (Class of '66) and we just celebrated our 40th anniversary. I spent a year assigned to the 8th Radio Research Field Station in Phu Bai, a lovely spot about 50 miles south of the DMZ. Along with my duties as a Traffic Analyst, I joined a mortar platoon and managed to acquire a full blown combat MOS, thank goodness they never called me to actually perform those duties in the field! I managed to quickly move up the ranks and left Vietnam an E-5, which was better than most and I was awarded a Bronze Star as well. I spent my last 18 months of service attached to the National Security Agency at Ft. Meade, MD before being discharged.We returned to Denton and I finished work on my degree, graduating with a BBA in August of 1973. I spent 34 years in the equipment finance industry, the last 22 1/2 with Caterpillar Financial Services and retired in March of 2008. Retirement is good, so far I have managed to stay busy and am finishing up training to volunteer with the City of Highland Village Police Auxiliary. Looking forward to busting perps in an upscale suburb of Dallas. Becky and I have one daughter, Heather, who is an attorney with Pier 1 Imports at their corporate office in Fort Worth. She lives in a historic area just south of downtown and loves Cowtown.

Lee HS '63 / Grad US Naval Academy '67.

Highlight of my life: being married to Jan Walker, Lee HS '65.  I never met Jan at Lee HS. Trip Clarke set us up on a date in '67.

I fell head-over-heels for Jan & we married not long after. I still have a huge crush on her!  She has given me a wonderful son & daughter. We have 3 grandkids. Spent 8 yrs as Naval Officer, with a year in Viet Nam. Taught at Annapolis, got Masters from GWU & attended Harvard Business School's AMP.  Moved to Virginia for 1st civilian job: US Govt in DC (Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp) & end up heading the agency. Then stayed in DC, heading a nationwide coalition working to bring law/regs supporting what became IRAs & 401Ks. 1981: Recruited to NYC & things sort of took off: managed financial companies, gravitating into investor/investment management groups.  Headed companies in NYC, Chicago, Toronto.  Ended up with Swiss Re, heading their US & Canadian companies & working in London, Zurich, and NYC.

Then went on to my life's deferred ambition: art school, studying oil painting.  Then a brief stint in Florida, living on the waterfront, boats, painting in a gallery group, etc.  For Jan & me, being in Florida was "different".  We soon moved to urban Los Angeles, blending big city buzz with good weather.  My mom is now in California, along with our children & grandchildren & a sister.  Jan's mom is still in Florida, so we are there often.  With Jan's coaxing & another year of training, I'm now sculpting in bronze ... to Lee HS' Hunter Benedict, I say, "It took awhile, but, as I promised you, I got there."
