I was born in Leedey, OK in 1940. We moved around a lot so I attended six different schools before entering high school in Elk City. Following graduation, I attended OSU and earned Bachelor's (1962)and Master's (1963)degrees in accounting.
More importantly, I married my high school sweetheart, Carol Gregory (Class of 1959) in 1960 and we began our wonderful journey, of forty-six years and counting, together. We have been blessed with three fine sons,three lovely daughters-in-law, plus eight delightful grandchildren. Our oldest son Scott, his wife Ellyna, and Kyle, Austin and Ryan, live in Ogden, Utah and we try to see them several times a year. Middle son Todd, his wife Laura, and Olivia, Sage and Isabella; along with our youngest son Chad, his wife Katrese, and Breanna and Caroline, all live close by so we enjoy their company often.
Following graduation, I was commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant in the U.S.Army and following completion of jump school at Ft. Benning, GA I was privileged to serve twenty seven months active duty with the 6th Special Forces Group at Ft. Bragg, NC. While there, I passed the CPA exam. In November, 1965 we moved to Denver, CO where I joined one of the then "Big Six" acounting firms, Haskins & Sells (now Deloitte & Touche) where I remained until 1969 when I left public accounting to become CFO of a land development company headquarted here in Monument, CO. In 1972, I went to work for the Johns-Manville Corporation in Denver where I remained until I took early retirement in 1992. Since 1992, I was a self employed commercial real estate broker and consultant in Colorado Springs until I retired.
