Check me out on FACEBOOK.
Was a Realtor in Texas for 14 years and now that we have moved to Arizona I am a Licensed Arizona Realtor, working for Temp Plus, in Phoenix.

School Story:

Graduated from Colorado State Unuiversity in Ft. Collins in August of 1965. Graduated in Speech Arts. Was one of the founders of our student radio station, KCSU-FM. Am still involved with CSU, as I am an Alumni Ambassador for the University in The Dallas/Ft. Worth area. I represent CSU at some High School College Fairs in the Ft. Worth Area. I have been doing this for 11 years. As far as a GPHS Story, I remember all the afternoons, I spent at Pete's pool hall with Norm Kost, Jim Culotta, Tom Gordon. We loved the snooker tables. The other stories I better not tell. Still love Beer and a Great Time.
Still see Jim Culotta and we talk by phone two
or three time per month. He was here this last June of 2010. We had a great time. He looks super.
Turned 76 in January of 2017. Never thought about being that age but feel great and still working and just painted my house here in AZ.
Carol and I moved into an apartment in 2011. Sizing down. Just don't need to have the house and all the work and expenses it brings. After 3 Apartments (horrible) we moved to Phoenix and bought a small home two and a half min. from our son's home in North Phoenix (Cave Creek & 101).
Jim Culotta was here the last of March. He is GREAT and we went to a Spring Training Game. Went in 2016 and 2017

I have great Memories of Carl  from my last two years at GPHS. It was always fun on Friday or Saturday night when we had the big card games and we listened to Red Fox. Carl was fun and a bit crazy and there was never a dull moment when he was present. I saw him the last time in Tucson in 1991. He hadn't changed a bit.  God Bless Carl and his Family.

Michael was a loyal Graduate of the class of 1960. I haven't  been to alot of functions but I know he was at most as he lived locally and loved the good times we had.. He was probably one of the oldest graduates because he was 76 just like I am. I hope Michael is at peace and is enjoying his time in the Heavens.

Our GPHS tour began in the auditorium. Completely restored to the way it looked in 1928. Over the years they had painted the walls black, put in orange seats and blue carpeting. Ewwww! When they removed the black paint they uncovered the long-forgotten gold leaf accents throughout the theatre! It looks great!

I met Bernie at Pierce and I saw him alot at the Babe Ruth Games and at School. We were friends but not close. I always wondered what happened to him, as he was a great Guy.
