BRIEFLY DESCRIBE YOUR ACTIVITIES SINCE GRADUATION: WORK!
After graduation I was happy and sad, not knowing what I wanted to do. Did I want to go to college or go to work? After 6 months of doing nothing, I decided that finding a job was the right thing for me to do. I went to work for the Fl. Dept. of Transportation in 1961. In 1962 I married my high school sweetheart, Virginia Vining. I was 20 and Virginia was 19. Virginia pursued a career in banking. We were two young people beginning a life together. We had two children, Troy born in 1964 and Amy born in 1967. Virginia and I were poor and broke but we didn’t know it because we were very happy. We have lived in Lake City our whole entire lives because it is a special place and it is our home. Virginia retired in 1998 and I in 2007, after 46 years. Since retiring we have enjoyed traveling around the United States. We have had a very happy marriage that has been going strong for 48 years. Looking back on my life, I would not have changed a thing. I am looking forward to seeing all my 1960 classmates at our 50th class reunion in April.
