retired Divorced 2 Sue
  I was so lucky to be a stay-at-home mom when my boys were young. I got involved in volunteering for PTA, Cub Scouts and church. Life was wonderful -------until it wasn't.
   After a divorce when the boys were middle school and close-to-middle-school age, I went to work for the Beloit Daily News where I stayed for about 20 years moving up to Regional Editor and finally Lifestyle editor. I left the BDN to work marketing and fund-raising for Stateline United Way, retiring from there in 2011.
  Today I spend my time going to water exercise three mornings a week, volunteer for the hospital and for Beloit Historical Society. A group of friends meet Fridays for breakfast, as we have done for about 20 years now.
  Son Rob married a woman with three children and the daughter had a baby boy in May, my first great grandchild. Yay!!! I have been out to see him twice already. Rob is part owner of a commerical real estate firm in Victorville, CA - Kursch Group.
  David is a lt. for the Beloit Fire Department. He is married and has three sons aged 28 to 13. 
  I LOVE retirement and wish I could have done this years ago!

Retired RetiredRetires Married 2
I worked at Brunton Motor Parts for 37 years, retiring Nov. 2015.  My wife Sandy and I
try to go the casino about twice a week. I’ve been collecting coins since my teens so that
keeps me busy. I also collect football, baseball, and NASCAR cards. I also have a lot of
Beatles memorabilia. I played softball for 30 years, bowled for many years, played  pool,
shot darts also for years. I love being retired and should have retired earlier. I sure don’t 
miss getting up to go to work and driving in crummy weather. Retirement is the
greatest and so nice to relax and enjoy life at your speed.

Retired Widowed 1 USMC, 1965 to 1967, Corporal
I retired in 2016 and moved back to Wisconsin after living in various parts of the country ... Muskegon, Rockford, Milwaukee, Salt Lake City, Tucson, and finally settled down for 35 years in Charlotte, NC.  I moved to Muskego, WI in 2015 after my 2nd wife of 40 years (Carol Matichich) passed away.  I was previously married to fellow classmate Pam (Harred) West for about 5 years .  Our daughter Monica, lives in West Allis with her husband Scott, and 3 children ... Olivia, Campbell, and Mackale.  Pam and I take great pride in our daughter and our beautiful grandkids.  My working life, like many of our classmates, has taken a few twists and turns.  I graduated from Muskegon Technical College with an associate degree in Cast Metals Technology, and worked in the foundry industry for 5 years.  I then exploited my background by landing a job with IBM in Tucson, AZ as a purchasing agent procuring cast metal components.  With IBM, I was fortunate to quality for a retraining program in which IBM sent me back to college to get my Computer Science degree.  I spent the next 20 years with IBM in a software support role for banking clients requiring automated check processing systems.  This led to my accepting a job with one of my clients, Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, managing their nationwide check processing of check image archiving.  I mostly worked from home for 15 years until retiring in 2016.  My hobbies include woodworking, and tinkering with anything involving Apple products ... Macs, iPhones, iPads, AppleTV, Watch, etc.  Also, I enjoy supporting this web site.  Send Michael a MessageSend Michael a Message

Retired Married 1
I spent most of my working years teaching third grade. After retirement, my husband and I spent a number of years traveling for 3 months each winter with our 5th wheel trailer. We also took a few weeks each summer to sail across Lake Superior, and nestle back into various anchorages along the wilderness coast of Ontario.

Due to my husband’s health issues, we are no longer traveling, but we both have settled into activities at home that keep us happy and busy.  I began doing a variety of volunteer work for the Buffalo Bill Center of the West’s Draper Natural History Museum.  I spend time in the Draper Lab, observing eagle nests for Dr. Charles Preston’s long-term research project on nesting golden eagles, and writing observation reports of raptor sightings in the Bighorn Basin.  In 2011 Dr. Preston began the Draper Museum Raptor Experience, a live raptor education program funded by grants and donations.  I immediately became part of this, training as a bird handler, and studying each species that we have in our program so that I can present, and/or answer questions about each bird that I work with.  We have 11 handicapped, non-releasable birds.  I am qualified to work with all except the two eagles, as I am not physically able to deal with their weight.  I have discovered that having a bird on my glove is my all time favorite thing in life.  I also write blogs for our raptor program, so if you are interested in birds, check those out at: https://centerofthewest.org/author/anneh/

retired Married Denny
I enlisted in the Navy in October of 1964.  Following a year of enlisted Nuclear Power Training, I served on two submarines in Charleston, South Carolina.  In 1968 I received a Navy scholarship and attended Miami University in Oxford, Ohio and graduated in 1972 with a degree in Chemistry. It is there I met my wife, Sue. We were married in September of 1970. After college graduation and being commissioned as an Ensign in the Navy, Sue and I were off to Norfolk, Virginia where I was a division officer on a destroyer, USS LEARY (DD 879).  After requesting to return to the submarine service I was stationed on submarines in Pearl Harbor as a Division Officer on USS PUFFER (SSN 652) and Department Head on USS SKATE (SSN 578) and then on to San Diego as Executive Officer on USS HOUSTON (SSN 713).  
 
In 1990 I took command of the fast attack submarine USS PORTSMOUTH (SSN 707) in San Diego, California. In 1995, I took command of the trident ballistic missile submarine USS ALABAMA (SSBN 731), in Bangor, WA. I also had shore duty assignments teaching at Nuclear Power School in Orlando California, at the Pentagon on the Staff of the Director of Naval Intelligence and the staffs of Commander in Chief U. S. Pacific Fleet in Hawaii and the Chief of Staff for Commander, Submarine Group NINE in Bangor, WA.  In August 1998 my final Navy assignment was Commanding Officer, Fleet Anti-Submarine Warfare Training Center in San Diego, California.  After 36 years in the Navy I retired in October 2000.  
 
Following retirement, Sue and I moved to Cedar Rapids, Iowa to work for Rockwell Collins and later Duane Arnold Energy Center, a nuclear power plant, before fully retiring in 2005. Sue and I currently reside there. Sue is from Garretson, South Dakota.  I enjoy golf, spending winters in Florida and doing ancestry research on my Norwegian heritage.
