Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Richard Oakes


After graduation lived in Ottumwa until 1962.
Judy and I and the girls moved to Tucson, Az
where I went to work for the Electric Company. I work there 18 years and left to go into the Restaurant business, starting with Sambo's , Pizza Hut, Chuckie Cheeze, then Judy and I opened our own restaurant for a short time , then I moved on to Red Lobster.
In 1998 I had triple heart by pass, all being
96 to 98 % blocked.
After living in Tucson for 40 years, Judy and I decided to make the move back to Ottumwa, which we did November 2002. Our youngest daughter Linde and her two youngest sons moved back with us and our middle daughter Becky and her family made the move this pas June, so as I like to tell everyone the Oakes clan is doing its part to help Ottumwa grow.
April of 2006 I had to have a stent inplant as I had another artory 98% blocked. Must be all that good food.
We feel so lucky to have been able to move back here and find this big old Victorian home. When you are in town stop by and see us, we are at the corner of Ward and Vine, big white house with fence around it.
I am one of those Ottumwans that will be at our 55th reunion, see all of you then.
Hope to see all of you at our 55th reunion.
Judy and I will be married 59years on November 3,2015. We have 12 grandchildren and 23 greatgrand children.
