Biographical Information:

Hello, Class of 1969. It has been a long time since I have seen many of you. Seeing so many in Memorium brings the reality of how long we have been classmates, and how the memories flood back of time spent with our departed classmates. I attended June's funeral - there is a little bit of us lost with each classmate who departs.

Since graduation I went to Ellsworth and eventually graduated from IOWA (though barely surviving 6 months of college in New Orleans with Newton - education was set back during that time). Ironically, one of our businesses has an office in New Orleans - Jim, I do not frequent the same places we did then.

Married Robbi in 1972 and we have been together since, having one daughter and one son, and now 4 grandsons. Spent most of our adult lives in Marion, IA. Kept the house there, but now reside in Bradenton, FL most of the year, coming back a lot of the summer, always to spend time with family.

Career began in sales and led to management, eventually becoming a turnaround specialist for small corporations. Now have our own companies and building them for family to run for years.

Still a huge sports fan - Hawks, Cubs, Bears and now a little FL flavor with BUCS - and NASCAR, get to a couple races every year with my Sister and Brother-in-law.

No picture submitted -I'll keep the skinny image you all have of me (with hair).

I keep in touch a little with Mike Aldinger and Jim Newton, good friends from then and good men now. Mom & Dad are still with us and living on the family farm I grew up on in Iowa Falls. It is good to be back in Iowa Falls and to touch my youth - even if I could not wait to get out way back when.

All my best,

Tom
