After moving from Seattle to Spokane, to Bellingham, then back to Seattle, then to New York and then once more back to Seattle, (it didn’t seem quite so complicated at the time but then again it was the 70’s), my husband, son and I finally settled in Kirkland where I still live today.
When my son started high school I returned to college and received a degree in interior design. My first job was with a large group of residential builders as a field designer, which is just a fancy way of saying I worked “out in the field” slogging through mud on construction sites. I loved it. Fast forward to today: I am still working and continue to focus on residential architectural design and specifications.  Over the years I’ve had the good fortune to work on construction projects around the country in addition to working locally with amazingly talented people in all phases of the design/build industry. My free time is shared with family, friends and a Yellow Lab named Lily.

Hank and I were married in 1978..37 yrs. to be celebrated the week of our Class Reunion.  I have 3 wonderful daughters...thanks very much to Hank and my 'Wife-In-Law' and friend, Diann.   We three share two grandkids, Katie and Jessy and 4 step-grandkids plus 3 great grandkids.  I lived in Seattle from age 20 to 30 (four of them with Jan Schoph--whoop whoop)  then, in 1976, I moved back home to MV and met Hank. We moved, permanently, after buying a vacation home in 1999, to Arizona in 2004.  We spend our Summers either traveling in our 5th wheel or working at Grand Canyon South Rim to get away from the stiffling heat of the Arizona summers.  My heart remains in the PNW where our much loved families and our cherished lifelong friends still live. I feel the 'Pull To Come Home'!!!  One last thought....Oh My Gawd....weren't we ever lucky to be raised in the BEST TIME EVER!!! Send Jill a MessageSend Jill a Message

After MV, I attended Seattle Pacific University and graduated in 1969 with a B.A. in Education with an English Phys./Ed. double major. While at SPU, I met my wife Diane and we were married following graduation. I started teaching and coaching high school in Kirkland that fall. During my first year of teaching, I was drafted and went into the Army the day after school ended.  I was stationed at Ft. Lewis, Ft. Sill, OK, and Frankfurt, Germany.  After that 2 year interruption, I resumed teaching and taught in Kirkland and Bellevue until 2003. I retired from teaching in Washington, and took a teaching job in Las Vegas, NV. I retired from that position last June.  During my 43-year career, I taught mostly English with a little Phys. Ed. and Driver Education thrown in, and also spent 11 years as Athletic Director at Lake Washington HS. While teaching, I coached 85 sports seasons. 43 of those were in track and field, and the rest spread between football, cross country, and girls' basketball. Although it was challenging, I was fortunate to love my job and have many cherished and rewarding memories.
Diane and I celebrated our retirement with a 3-week trip to France last fall -- a wonderful and enriching experience.
We raised a daughter and son, and now are the proud grandparents to 3 grandchildren. We currently are splitting time between Kirkland and Las Vegas and feel we have the best of both worlds!

This is a great site.  Congratulations to all those who have worked on it.
 
After graduating from the UW, I married Gail, a UW classmate from Central California..  48 years later we’re still together...obviously a testimonial to Gail for being able to put up with me all these years. 
 
A year after completing college I attended Coast Guard Officer Candidate School (where to my surprise, Andy McIntosh was in the same class and platoon).  Even though I intended to only remain in the USCG for my 3 year obligation, I found the organization, its people, and the jobs to be fun, exciting, and challenging.  And the Coast Guard sent me to graduate school at the University of Michigan (no better way to go than have the educational costs paid by the government plus getting my regular salary while being a student).  We moved 13 times in 26 years with tours of duty throughout the U.S. and one in the Middle East (Bahrain) where I travelled to all Arabian countries, southern Asia, and northeastern Africa.  After that I was assigned as Commanding Officer of Marine Safety Office Tampa. 
 
After completing my Coast Guard career in 1997, I spent a year doing maritime consulting, then worked for a company learning sales and marketing.  That prepared me to start a business my wife and I owned for 17 yrears before selling it and starting a new one.   

After living in the San Francisco Bay area for 15 years, Gail and I moved south to Fullerton, California in 2014. where we live a mile from our daughter and 9-year old grand-daughter.  No surprise I'm sure...but we're relishing that!  I like kayaking, playing tennis, and shooting hoops at my backyard basket, but our main activity is travel and sightseeing.
 
Occasionally I’ve returned for short visits to Mt. Vernon and Skagit County and it brings back warm feelings every time.  I particularly like driving north on I-5 and seeing the Valley open up as you come down the hill a few miles before getting to Conway.
 
It’s been a great life...and a fair share of that results from living in Mt. Vernon and the friends I had there, attending MVHS, working in the fields throughout Skagit County, commercial fishing at Lummi Island, and operating the Dari-Delite.

Married 4 4

I received my Civil Engineering degree from UW in 1971. When the US Army Corps of Engineers offered me an internship in Anchorage , Alaska , my wife Bonnie and I packed our bags and headed north. Thus began a life-long adventure. We planned to return to Seattle in 3 to 5 years, but we never got around to it. We fell in love with Alaska , and decided to make it our home. Alaska is a remarkable place, with limitless opportunities, and it’s a great place to raise a family (which we did). We have 4 children and 4 grandchildren (so far) and have been married 46 years.

 My three-year contract with the Corps morphed into a career spanning 36 years. Designing and building  in Alaska is challenging, exciting, and often filled with adventure. Over my career, I travelled all over the State, yet it seems I hardly scratched the surface. The place is huge-- if Alaska was superimposed over the “lower 48”, it would span from San Francisco to Jacksonville , Florida . Yet most of the State is without a road system, so the logistics associated with executing projects are mind-boggling (and expensive).

 I loved my job and it was a constant learning experience, but at age 60 it was time to move on. So Bonnie and I both retired in 2007 (her from the Anchorage School District ).   Not long after retiring, we bought a house in a little retirement community in Casa Grande , Arizona , and we now do the snowbird thing, splitting our time between Alaska and Arizona (the best of both worlds). While in Alaska , we enjoy spending time with our family, and we also spend a lot of time at our cabin on Red Shirt Lake , a fly-in-only lake about 40 miles north of Anchorage . With 20-ish hours of daylight, we keep pretty busy during the summer. While in Arizona , it’s easy to stay busy with the multitude of activities available. Bonnie is generally occupied with her quilting projects and the quilting club—she chairs a committee that donates about 200 quilts per season to the children’s wing at the local hospital. I volunteer at the computer center, and spend a lot of time updating software and just generally helping out. I am amazed at how many seniors know very little about setting up and operating computers and mobile devices. It can be quite frustrating for them as they try to access email, arrange flight schedules, and the like. We offer classes to alleviate some of the fears associated with entry into the cyber world. I also participate in MLB spring training, working with the LA Angels, whose home stadium is located in Tempe (actually I work for the City of Tempe which owns and operates the stadium). It’s great fun, and I get to watch all the free baseball games I want.
(Dennis and Bonnie are not able to come to the reunion)

 

So this is life as I know it, at least for now.
