Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Duane Dodson


Born 1935 in Paragould Arkansas. To Azwell WA a year later, then on to Wenatchee prior to grade school. Thru grade 3 in Wenatchee, then Loomis WA grades 4,5,6. Back to Wenatchee 7th grade onward. With buddy Larry Harn, started work at Boeing in Seattle, first Monday after graduation. He went back to WJC in the fall, I stayed, took night classes at UofWA. Left Boeing for job in chem lab at Amer Marietta. Head chemist was mountaineer Pete Schoening. He had us climbing peaks every weekend..St Helens included. Then came Jan 55, GI Bill was to end, so enlisted in the Navy. Off the plane in San Diego, into a new life. Navy electronics schools on Treasure Island in San Fran Bay, cruises to the Far East, Sydney Australia, Victoria BC..and best of all, met Patricia at a ships party, Mission Beach Ballroom San Diego. Spilled a drink on her, but she forgave me, and we were wed by Navy Chaplain, Navy Chapel, Hunters Point Ship Yard July 18, 1957. Chaplain cried when reading our vows, but must have been happy tears..those vows have stuck for over 50 years, 5 kids, 8 grandkids. Patti spent the next 25 years raising the kids and putting up with me when I did get home...always on the road, fixing "Shakers". Vibration Testing has been my life, and when the kids were grown and gone, Patti started traveling with me. A new life for us both..jobs in Ponce Puerto Rico, Surrey, Calgary, Toronto..Keyport and Hanford WA, Jupiter and Miami FL, Bedford Nova Scotia...on and on..and still at it!! More of a "teacher" now, than a repair tech. Son Eric is carrying on..on his own. Check him out on the internet at DodsonTech.com.

Patti and I just want to make it to the 55th reunion. Want to see Loomis again too, but most of all, just want to sit and talk with Thelma, Alex, Bonita, and all the rest of you who shared your lives with me, and gave me those super good memories of Wenatchee High.
