Wow - 50 years since WHS! Well, letís seeÖ a 36+ year engineering and management career at NUWC Keyport followed my graduation from U of W and included some post-grad stuff along the way. But the neatest part of that career was meeting Shelley, my wife of 44 years as one of the job bennies. We have two daughters and two grandkids, and along way have also had eight foster kids as part of the Kelf household at different times. Oh yeah, I canít neglect to mention the two cats, a couple of gerbils, and three dogs that have also called our place in Bremerton their home over the years.
In 2004 when I retired, Shelley and I founded a non-profit business incubator to assist church planters in blessing poor and marginalized global communities in some of the most challenging parts of the world Ė you know, ďteach someone to fish instead of just giving them fish.Ē No matter where one goes in the world, the common need and desire of almost everyone is a job. I presently serve as CFO and as a business coach and consultant to would-be entrepreneurs, while Shelley handles all the financial processing for that organization. In order to maintain my technical skills over the past 10 years since retirement, Iíve also been engaged in a part-time systems engineering gig working for a large science and engineering firm.
But life hasnít been all work. I continued to pursue music as a hobby for 35 years after WHS, finally hanging up the tuba for good in 1999. For the past three decades or so, Iíve prepared and led numerous Bible studies for small groups in a number of settings; traveled all over the country to ride as many different roller coasters as possible; engaged in photography (mostly things that go fast); and have visited as many In-N-Out burger locations as I can find. Shelley and I like to take-in live musical theater and symphony performances whenever we can, and we sufficiently spoil our grandkids with frequent visits to Disneyland.
Thatís about it. Many thanks to Bill Bissell, Jeanne Brewer, Coach Chuck and other WHS staff who helped me get ready for life Ė itís been a good ride so far! Iím interested to see whatís next.
Looking forward to seeing everyone in August of 2014
