See his obit at the followin
. . .
Born in Dickson, OK, east of Ardmore. 5th of 5. 2 brothers & 2 sisters. 2nd sister died within a week or 2 of her birth.
Moved to Shawnee before 1st grade, living in a house just a couple blocks north of Jefferson Elementary. Moved to E.Wallace before 1st grade and Mom put me in Jefferson 'cause that's where the one brother had gone. But within days I was switched to Lee Elementary since it was much closer.
Parents divorced after my 1st grade and we moved to the old Navy barracks that were known as Beacon Hill, just SW of Kickapoo & Federal. From there, brother & I caught the bus and went to Acme, then a country school.
Transferred to Wilson, on N.Beard, for 7th grade.
Went into Navy on 12-01-66 after graduating high school; played electrician for 2 years in Rota, Spain, then for 10/11 months in Groton, Connecticut; I got out of the Navy on Monday, Aug 3, 1970, and was married the following Friday evening, Aug 7, in Harvey, North Dakota, to Judith Marie Graumann, sister-in-law of the Pizza Hut manager in Shawnee when I worked there my senior year of high school.
We moved to Okmulgee, OK, and I attended OSU Tech School for electronics for 2 years. Took job with Texas Instruments in Dallas, TX, moving to Garland in 1972, same year the Texas Rangers baseball team moved in. After several years with TI, I worked on my bachelors degree at community college and Southern Methodist off and on. University of Texas at Dallas opened way for acquiring a computer science degree, so shifted all credits there and with the aid of a great school program through TI finished up in 2 years straight graduating in fall of 1986.
By then we had our 2 sons; Brian, born on New Years Day, 1974; and Aaron born Dec 23, 1980. Yeah, seven years apart. No family planning in our household.
To date, son Brian has a daughter (Chloe) & a son (Vance); making us grandparents.
Younger son Aaron got married Oct 4, 2013, to a wonderful fellow teacher. She changed to being a counseler in 2015 and Aaron coaches middle school girls volleyball & basketball.
I left TI and worked for 5 other companies with the longest time being at DSC Communications (which sold to Alcatel). The last job was for a CA start up, but they didn't last long and I was only with them 7-8 months. As the software business got tight there were no positions available for the likes of me, so I took a back seat to life and did substitute teaching and sports officiating. Then a couple years ago I decided to officially retire & start taking the old Govt Social Security and back off on the other stuff.
