After graduation I followed Bob Goss to Texas A&I in Kingsville. After two semesters of relaxed study I returned to SAC to relax some more. The relaxation qualified me for a scholarship into the Texas Air National Guard. However I emerged from my electronics training at Lowery AFB in Denver as an honor graduate finally realizing that results are generally commensurate with efforts.
I returned to Kingsville and graduated with a BBA in accounting in 1969 after discovering an affinity for it too late at SAC. I worked for Peat Marwick in Houston for two years then transferred to the office in Corpus Christi during which time I received my CPA certificate. In 1971 I became Controller of Harkins & Company in Alice - a privately held oil & gas drilling, exploration & production company. Though for a time we had over 400 employees and operations in four states, we fell victim to one of the several downturns in the industry and liquidated most of the company's assets in 1990 when Mr. Harkins passed away.
After having been in education in various capacities, in 1990 Melonae accidentally moved to Alice from the Dallas area to accept an administrative position with the AISD. We met through the thoughtful efforts of several friends and were married on the one-year anniversary of out first date on December 15,1990. Melonae is now Assistant Superintendant for Business & HR.
My son Phillip was born in March of 1973. He and his wife Jenifer along with Jesicah('06) & Evan ('08)live in Bulverde. Phillip is a Co-founder of an internet based e-procurement solution provider, Jenifer is a RN.
Melonae & I are partners in an office building in Corpus Christi which I manage along with spending some time on trustee matters and a few tax clients. We also are parents to two 11 year old cats and a 30 year old African Grey parrot.
We've managed to carve out some time along the way to visit Hawaii, Ireland, Brazil and most recently Spain. We may soon be retiring and moving back to good old SA. It's been a great ride so far!
