After 6 years at Rolla getting a Bachelors degree in Aerospace Engineering and a Masters in Engineering Mechanics I went to work for the Army Corps of Engineers in Kansas City. The most exciting part of that 20 years was the research and design of some of the early solar at our recreational sites. Also the first large, not so large now, :) wind turbines in Kansas.
After 20 years the job became more administrative and design review that it was time to go in to my next love, teaching Math and science. So the previous 6 years I was in night school getting certified. Now for the last 17 years I have been teaching at CPRS. That I enjoy very much, teaching a lot of smart good kids. Many have graduated engineering at MU, KU, UMR (SMT) and attending now. I like helping young people learn the fasination of young engineering. :)
My oldest son, 13 years later is still plugging away at electrical engineering. May get done in 2 years now that he is tracking, what a long road that has been, but I love him all the same.
My youngest, went straight through. 4.00 in Criminology at Warrensburg, and then his Jurist Doctorate at UMKC. Graduating in the top 11% he worked for a County Judge for 2 years and is now a Special Agent, his life long dream.
I have been married to a wonderful woman, Sue who is a nurse, and is the tele health lady at Visiting Nurses Association. We still like camping when we get a chance. We have had a girl from Romania living with us the last 4 years and in May 2010 she will graduate from Surgical Tech school. Helps the Dr in surgery.
We live in the city/country on 38 acres, which keep me pretty busy in the summer. Wish everyone well, and hope everyone is getting to know Christ better everyday! :)

Mr. Leroy Brown 1929 - 2017
Was it only yesterday we said "hi" in the hallway or shared the same class?
Was it only yesterday we talked on the phone or crammed for a test?
Was it only yesterday we held our diplomas and said our good byes?
Was it only yesterday we heard of your passing?
And we cried.
