More About Me

Retired from Boeing Customer Services where I worked as a systems analyst and customer software trainer. Married 45 yrs to the same wonderful women. We have three children. One son has lost the use of his left eye due to a brain tumor (non-malignant, thank GOD.)

I sing bass in a local chorus "The Memorie Singers" (we entertain at nursing/retirement homes, etc.) Volunteer at Seatac airport, (I can tell people where to go and they appreciate it.)
