About me/us (Hobbies, interests, life philosophy, etc.) :

Retired this year in June after teaching for 27 years the fine art of automotive refinishing. Ya I'm still a motor-head. Have spent over 40 years in automotive trades. My interests are [go figure] cars and racing. I also do alot of home remodeling on home that I built back in 1997. The house sits on 10 treed acres in Spokane county. Other interests are golfing, traveling, BBQing, drinking wine, and just enjoying life in general. I have also been drag racing for over 30 years. My current ride for the last 20 some years is a 70 Z-28 Camaro NHRA Pro Gas. WE call them "door cars". I re-married in 1998 to my sole mate and best friend Laurie. WE have 3 grand boys. Bought a house outside of Phoenix in 2010 [foreclosure] and now we are official snow birds [oh my god I'm getting old]. Well classmates hope everyone is well and living life large as I'm trying to do.

Who else in your family is a CHS Alum?

3 sisters, Carol, Sharon, Lori

Favorite School Story:

Wow were to start? Remember streaking? Remember Brian Talbot? We unloaded his dirt bike out of his root beer brown corvaire van in the famous parking lot, [the gang knows what I mean] Brian only had on his birthday suit and motocross boots and goggles. He road thru the campus down the steps in the lunch area where we picked him up over by the industrial shops and sped off to celebrate with a big fatty.

What teacher inspired you the most & how has it affected your life?

Can't remember my shop teachers names [senior moment] but it's kinda obvious given my career path.
