  After Troop 37, I attended Coral Gables High for 1 year and then graduated from Pompano Beach Senior High in 1961. I graduated from the University of Florida with a BA in History in 1965 and an MEd in Guidance and Counseling in 1966. I also attended the University of Colorado-Denver (public administration), Georgia State University (geography and environmental studies), University of Maryland (animal science) and received a BS degree from South Dakota State University (animal science). My working career included 30 years with the Federal government with the US Department of Health, Education and Welfare, Office of Emergency Preparedness, US Civil Service Commission, and US Department of Agriculture. I retired in 1999 and now live on a small farm in northwest Pennsylvania. I am married and have a son and daughter.

My interests include farming, gardening, livestock raising, historical reenacting, and a wide range of arts and crafts. I have had a few articles I wrote published in American deer hunter, Muzzleloader, and Muzzle Blasts magazines. I have also self-published a collection of science fiction parodies and general writings and poems.

My brother Ken did not mention it, but he is currently enrolled at Wright State University with a major in art. He has had photographs selected for display in an Ohio statewide exhibition and has completed a large number of excellent paintings .
