After graduation I worked with my father as a commercial fisherman out of Bodega Bay. Two years later I started work at the Vallejo Post Office as a letter carrier. Four years later I went to work for the Vallejo Police Department retiring in December of 1998.
My first marriage ended in divorce, but produced two children Dina and John. Dina is a widely known techno DJ (Drag'nFly) and John is a Vice Principal at Davis High School. John had the distinction of being drafted by the Boston Red Sox after his graduation from Solano College. He was in pro ball for three years and then was released. Both children graduated from Sac State with my daughter graduating Magda Cum Laude.
My second marriage ended with the cancer caused death of my wife, Diana. My third wife, Ann is a Vallejo native graduating from Vallejo High School. She is currently teaching English at Vallejo High School. We hope she will be able to retire in about 9 years or so. We will then extend our traveling. That's it. It, for the most part, has been a great ride.
January 19, 2008.
My son John is leaving his position as a vice principal of Davis High School and accepting a similar position for Rodriquez High School. I neglected to include my son's children in my first posting. He and his wife, Toni (Rodriquez)have two children Genevieve (Genna) who is six in January and a son (Andrew) who is three this past November.
In June of 2002 I was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma. In February of 2003 I had a successful bone marrow transplant. On December 9, 2008 I had my fifth annual bone marrow test. The results show that the cancer has not yet began to grow, which puts me in the upper 50% of people with my disease. I have been working as a campus supervisor for Jesse Bethel High School since December of 2006 to the present. I have also recently obtained an Occupational Teaching Certificate and will be substituting for Pete Kalk at the Vallejo Adult School teaching traffic school.
