After ETHS, I attended college in Kansas, however, did not complete a degree at that time. I worked as a Union Certified Welder for many years and in 1983 I reenrolled in college and completed two Bachelors degrees.

From 1983 through 2004 I was employed with several Kansas, Missouri and Federal offices working in Welfare and Purchasing. In 2005, my career goals changed and I became a truck driver over the road and retired in 2012.

For two years after retiring I resided in Indianapolis IN, however at present I reside in Joplin MO.

I’ve been in Joplin MO for almost four years now and know that I retired in the perfect place. For two years I have been a member of a group which takes bus trips to various events and locations. I am scheduled for a trip to Branson MO to see “Samson” at a playhouse. In September I will travel to Kansas City to see the Broadway play “Mamma Mia”. Old Route 66 is remembered well here.

My motorcycle became difficult for me to handle so I sold it and now ride a motor scooter. It’s actually a kick to drive and easier for me to load in my truck.

I enjoy reading about each of you. My favorite teacher and mentor was Mr. Gassen.

God Bless

Hi Tad. I hope this finds you healthy and doing well. Are you the owner of a 1958 Continental convertible Mark lll? I was watching “Bitchin Rides” and almost fell out of my recliner. Was watching Barrett Jackson and a 1964 Pontiac Catalina 2+2 sold for, I think, $45K and wondered if you still had yours. Wish I still had the two Oldsmobile 442s I owned.
