Summary of your life since 1967:

I attended KSC for 2 1/2 years after high school. Then enlisted in the Navy in December 69 and retired in June 93 after 23 1/2 years as a Master Chief Electronics Technician. I married Helen in March 1980, and have two great daughters. I worked for Applied Materials in the semiconductor equipment industry in Silicon valley for 26 years 4 months after retiring from the Navy. Now that I'm fully retired I'm looking forward to that part of life. I don't plan to do very much traveling, since I spent 14 years overseas while I was in the Navy. California is OK (nice weather but high taxes and too many crazy people), but I plan to move to Sierra Vista, Arizona sometime in 2020. I still miss Kearney, but not the snow and cold.

Favorite place in Kearney:

Harmon Park and Cottonmill Lake were always great places I think everyone enjoyed.
Buffalo Chips Saloon and the Fireside Inn were always fun too.

Favorite place to go to today:

I want to go back to Scotland or Hong Kong

If I could time-travel back to 1967, I would like to...

I wasn't very good, but I'd love to play football again.
