Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Jon Kreple




After most of us graduated, and I was encouraged to assure that my diploma was indeed signed, I attended Michigan Technological University. Mr. John D. Eister, a great teacher and personal mentor, thought I would do well at Tech. Or, he secretly hated me and wanted me to freeze to death and be as far away from the rest of the people that I knew and, in some cases, loved. Unbeknownst to him, Chris Korsikas and Doug Sporte, were also sentenced to time beyond the end of the earth. Susan Karakas, later joined us after she got married. Pat Landon (Jonker) did, too but I don't remember that for some blurred reason.
Thanks to the teaching methods of "Porky John" at something called Analysis (later known to the confused masses as "Pre-Calculus") my education started with a rehash, which I "aced". Take that, Ken Decker!
I don't recall much of the rest of my time at Tech, other than the fishing was great.
Had I graduated within the normal four years it takes to attain a BSME, I would not have met my wife. She picked me out of a grouping of 5000 or so deranged young men. That she picked me still astonishes my closest college friends. Since most things astonish me, I'm in total agreement.
The remaining duration of my, so called, life (up to this point) has been a mixture of blessings and probably normal challenges.
Seemingly, a few weeks after graduation, we had three wonderful children, a mortgage, and I was in the electricity generation business. A couple months following that, we had moved from Muskegon to Jackson. Then on to Midland to build a nuclear power plant, that never even came close to achieving a sustained nuclear reaction. 35 years, and several million tons of coal burned later, here we are in Holland, Michigan. We retired in 2007, and have six beautiful grandchildren.
I was sure the lights would go out after I left, but as you can see, most of the time they're still on. I'll wager that most of you would have packed in a few more candles had you known that I had some small significant part in keeping those lights on. Sometimes you gotta keep your past a secret, just in case the climate changes, or somebody wonders how a guy manages to not totally screw up his life. I remain most thankfully blessed.
