Favorite St. Mary's Memories: Sports, math & science classes, the great time we had just being kids in a simpler world

What I have been doing since High School: Mostly we have been vagabonds. I knew very early that the farm life was not for me. After teaching for seven years, I also realized that I needed more money to support the family. With my math degree, I sought out a job in the insurance industry, focusing on actuarial and financial planning. That led us to Chicago in 1974, to New Jersey in 1979, to Colorado in 1983, to Connecticut in 1989 and finally back to Colorado in 1992. We have been here since. After taking an early retirement from the corporate world in 1998, I went to work for Sue at a flower shop she had purchased in 1996. We finally sold the flower shop in 2004. And since then we have been retired.

Comment: With only five graduation classes and 153 graduates, we may have been only a blip on the radar screen, and even though we are long gone I don’t think we are forgotten among our classmates.
