"Any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile. I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction...'I served in the United States Navy.' " John F. Kennedy.
I was born in West View, Kentucky, November 23, 1936. At age 18, I joined the U.S. Navy in May 1955. Married to my lovely wife Dixie in 1959, have 3 wonderful children David, Karen, and Timothy, and three great in-laws Dana, John, and Pam.

I began working for the Tennessee Valley Authority in 1978 as a Maintenance Specialist and then in 1984 the Macintosh computer was born. I just had to have one.
