We're not getting older, just better! We are always the same age inside. It's hard to believe it has been 58 years since we graduated in 1959!!!
Our 50th Class reunion in 2009 was so much fun and we ALL had a great time! The grand finale was an afternoon and evening BBQ party and visiting at Gary Kreigshouser's 7-Up Ranch.

After HHS graduation and working through the summer I traveled with Gary Gooseman’s family to CU in Boulder and decided quickly to enroll there (I wasn’t prepared to go anywhere else!). It was a pretty campus and a great place to be. That fall Colorado saw excellent snow pack and skiing beginning the end of August and throughout the year. For $10 I could pay my part of the gas to A Basin, Loveland or wherever for the day, buy my lift ticket, get a cheap lunch and have a few 3.2 beers on the way home as we passed through Idaho Springs.
Our Hereford education prepared us well, and after three years I had all the credits needed for medical school and applied to Southwestern Medical School in Dallas for the fall 1962 class. I was accepted and that meant I missed my 4th year at CU where I had planned to play a lot…maybe not having that diversion was lucky.
Texas has some pretty dumb laws; you must have 12 hours (if I remember the number correctly) of history and government courses completed before receiving one’s first post-high school degree. As I didn’t graduate from CU, my first degree would be an M.D. That meant I was taking correspondence courses during med school and went back to CU to take a government course the next summer. During the first week in Boulder an old girl friend introduced me to a friend of hers, Judith Cunningham, who I had seen a few times before, but never even talked with her. We had a rocket romance and were engaged in 2 weeks for a winter wedding.
I was in Dallas that fall when JFK was killed. My roommates and I went home for lunch and stood along the route to wave at the passing presidential parade. JFK reached Parkland just before we returned from lunch and was being cared for by my surgery resident teacher, Jim Carrico, as we got there. Judy and I married one month later.
After graduation in 1966 we interned in Seattle, the Emerald City, and had the fist boy, Drew, while experiencing the nicest people we have ever worked and lived near. In 1967 we entered the Air Force for two beautiful years in New Mexico at Holloman Air Force Base. Eric was born there shortly after we arrived. Enchanting place and time to begin a family.
Neuroscience became my interest while at the research laboratory in the Air Force, and I went to Yale for post-graduate training in Neurology. I stayed for almost 18 years doing research in stroke, teaching at Yale and running the Neuro-ICU/Stroke treatment center there and the VA. We learned to love NYC, but my kids are Yankees.
After the academics for those years I transitioned to business joining Parke-Davis in Ann Arbor, MI to develop new and promising drugs for neurological and psychiatric indications. That was a blast, and we developed several new drugs to treat neurological diseases including epilepsy, pain, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and others. The big company was a great training ground, but the smaller companies called, and we moved to San Francisco to join Athena Neurosciences in 1992 and continued to develop new drugs for several neurological diseases: spasticity, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, severe pain among others.
San Francisco is a great city to visit and more fun to live there. The beauty is everywhere with the ocean, the bay, the high sierra mountains and skiing, the valleys and wineries. We have enjoyed the exquisite food there from the start and love to try new ethnic styles and tastes. We are located 12 blocks from China Town, 10 blocks from Union Square, 8 blocks from the symphony hall and opera house, 4 blocks from Japan Town. There are over 200 restaurants within 8 blocks and 28 movie theaters similarly nearby. The weather is very predictable: rains during the monsoon months of Dec-Mar and then none the rest of the year. Cool all the time especially in June, but never freezes and rarely above 80. We have traveled around the area and have family scattered all over northern California. I still enjoy racing on the track and road racing and was recently first in my car class on the Virginia City hill climb in Nevada.
Our youngest soon came to visit us there and quickly moved to the Santa Cruz coast, learned to surf, and eventually married a friend from his college days. They settled in the mountains above Los Gatos and have two cute and busy boys. He owns a company installing clean rooms and equipment in the Bay Area. The older boy returned to the Carolinas for graduate school and married there. Shortly after was divorced and now lives in Boca Raton, FL and has a great son almost 7 and practices with his Ph.D. in psychology.
I retired in 2001 to consult part-time. We bought the ranch west of Ft Worth and spend time in both locations. I raise feeder cattle and Judy raises Norwegian Lundehund dogs that were on the brink of extinction. We have lots of fun with the family here in the country for holidays and also in San Francisco almost any time outside the monsoon season.
We dedicate this website to our deceased class members. Their memories will live in our hearts forever.
