I retired from IBM 12/31/2015 but am very busy running my online business selling primarily NOS auto parts. You can find me on eBay with the seller name dad*n*lad or see my website/store at

I lost my beautiful wife Linda in 2013. That was too hard to even begin to describe but life does keep moving along. ***Update: I am in a new relationship, can you believe it her name is also Linda!***

After 20 years in Colorado, I moved back in Missouri in 2006, living in Appleton City. That's a little town of 1100 located between Butler and Clinton on Hwy 52. My job with IBM allowed me to work from home full time, and Appleton City is where my grandchildren were and I wanted to see them growing up.

I'm also managing this class website.

How did you locate the new web site?

Yes I got the placement with past reunions at one of the reunions meetings that we went to... I just hadn't gotten my booklet or name tag so I talked to Wendy at one of our monthly luncheons that we have and she mentioned that you had the booklets I also wanted to order a picture so I got it got the address from her for the photography studio so I could get a photo from him... I so wanted to go to the reunion... I cried and cried... I discovered at our meetings that I really wished I had known you in high school you really made an impression on me and I feel that I can call you a friend for the rest of my life... Thank you for everything that you do... Much love

Sorry you couldn't make it to the reunion, I sure hope your ankle is getting better. As if our now normal aches and pains weren't enough...

Did you get the reunion booklet and reunion photo collage? Those went out Monday, if you don't have it yet then probably today.

My step father worked at the Knobtown brickyard back then, and I often visited my cousins who also lived on Brick House Road (we called it Brick Yard Row as I recall it).  I remember Imogene being the prettiest girl I had ever seen and had a huge secret crush on her.  I guessing we were 13 at the time.
