I left my French horn behind at SHS and headed off to UC Davis to study Engineering. It was there that I met Ann Grimes (McClatchy ’58) and we married after I graduated in June 1963 in the first graduating class of civil engineers at UCD. I managed to add another 6+” (and more than a few pounds) to the 5’ 1” frame I had in high school.
After 3+ years in the army in Germany, we settled in Davis for 18 years. We have also lived in Lafayette, CA, and Potomac, MD. We have lived in Orinda since 1994.
I worked initially for state government, securing my license as a professional engineer. By 1970, I had transitioned to the practice of “political engineering” with the Legislature’s Senate Committee on Natural Resources. I left government service in 1979 to work for Pacific Gas and Electric Company and retired in 1996. After 3+ years with a transportation holding company in Palo Alto, I retired for good in 2001. Today, I serve as the volunteer Accountant, Customer Service Department and Shipping Department for Ann Testa Ceramics. You can check it out at anntesta.com.
Our daughter lives in Austin, TX and our son is in Sacramento. We have 4 grandchildren.
Ann and I have traveled extensively, all over the world. When home, I spend time on the golf course, doing genealogy research, performing some volunteer activities and studying Italian. I manage to find time for Bay Area and Sacramento golf encounters and lunch gatherings with friends all the way back to the first grade at El Dorado Elementary.
