I married my high school sweetheart (Sharon McGaughey) in 1962 and now have been married for 47 years, with 4 children, 16 grand children and 4 great grand children.
I worked for Mesa Public Schools as a Steamfitter for 11 years, moved to Roosevelt, AZ, in 1974. I worked as a Pipefitter for a copper mine (BHP) and retired in Dec. of 2005. We do a lot of camping in our 5th wheel. We like to hike, fish and just about anything out of doors. We also are very active in the LDS Church in Claypool, AZ. I served as Branch President at a Branch in San Carlos, with the Apache Indians. We loved these Native Americans. I am now serving in the Globe, AZ. Stake as a High Councilor with speaking assignment in 4 wards and 2 branches. Sharon and I just want to grow older together.
I love retirement and wonder how I ever had time to work. I now stay as busy as I want to or do as little as I want to.
I love to cook which makes Sharon very happy and she has told me, you cook, I clean but I most always clean up the kitchen as I am cooking. I find recipes in magazines and I just have to try them. Some great and some not so good.
We now have been married 48 year and will 49 in March. Where did the time go? We now have 5 great grand kids and two will arive around the end of March 2011.
Life is great.

School Story:

I graduated in 1961 with my high school sweet heart Sharon McGaughey. I also ran cross country with Jim Goldman and Larry Gilbert. We have remained good friends and we get together ocassionally.
I remember when I pulled Penny Palmer's pigtail in the 7th grade and she turned around and stabbed me with her pencil in my fore arm and I can still see the lead under my skin to this day.
