I’m made some revisions to my original bio. Wanted to give some additional reflective history for those who may be interested. After graduating from Paseo, I stayed in the KC area and worked for the Jones Store Co and later JC Penny. Got married in 1964, called into the military (USN). Two years active duty – Communication Intercept Operator – Russian and Chinese transmission, Pensacola, Fla. Assigned to special services – USN Boxing Team - represented the Navy throughout country – Base champ, all Navy etc. Discharged in 1967, married with 3 children, working 2 full-time jobs – JC Penney, Burlington Northern Railroad (72 hrs per wk) and enrolled full time (15 units) at KCK Junior College under the GI Bill. Transferred to UMKC, graduated in 1971. I began my law enforcement career as a Probation Officer in KC, then with the Bureau of Prison – Leavenworth Penitentiary – Correctional Treatment Specialist. Went through a divorce, ex-wife and children relocated to San Francisco in 1973. I relocated to the Bay area and shared joint custody. Met my second wife, Dolly, ER Nurse – San Francisco native. While both of us had full time jobs, we bought and owned a small Café and Pub called “The Kingfish” located in Berkeley/Oakland. We turned the place around and it became one of the most notorious Rugby hangouts for the University of California Rugby teams. We also sponsored CAL’s baseball and Water Polo programs. We had a smart exit strategy and sold the business in 1983 to three CAL alumni.
I continued my federal employment with the Department of the Army – Presidio Army Base, Veteran Administration, Department of Labor (Organized Crime Task Force), and Department of Housing Urban Development – Criminal/Civil Investigator. Retired in 2001 – 32 years. I obtained my Private Investigator’s license in 1988 and did criminal defense cases and insurance investigations involving contestable death claims. I was later hired by the City and County of San Francisco – Office of Labor Standards Enforcement. I’ve been with the City ten (10) years now. Not sure that I’m all that anxious to retire. The jury is still out.
Between Dolly and I we have six children, 9 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. We reside in a wonderful costal community (Inverness – Point Reyes Station) which is about 35 miles from the City. I never get tired of taking the Larkspur Ferry and coming into San Francisco early in the morning. It truly is a picturesque site. I’m still active, play a lot of tennis, kayaking and taking my motorcycle rig (Triumph with sidecar) around the countryside with the grandkids on board. I’ve become musical as I’ve gotten older. Play a pretty good Concertina, little banjo, harmonica. Now I’m learning how to play Bagpipes. Needless to say, Dolly is not too please with this new adventure.
Through the Paseo link I’ve been able to thread some interesting and informative contact with the “Paseo Ghosts” of my past. It’s been bitter/sweets reading of our classmate’s achievements and sadly learning of those who passed on. I am profoundly and emotionally moved on how many have extended their kindness, compassion, and friendship to those classmates with serious and debilitating medical issues. The grand human spirit is alive and well.
To all that have taken the time to read this the below is a wonderful Irish poem that has a special meaning to me. I hope will make you smile. Perhaps, it may become special for you.
"May God give you
For every storm, a rainbow'
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial,
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer."
