Resume' List | Home Page


I was born and raised in Grand Island, Nebraska (GRI) where I also graduated from the local Senior High School in 1947. Shortly thereafter (1948) I entered the United States Navy serving for four years as a radioman with an Air Search & Rescue Group stationed at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. After being discharged from the Navy, I attended Hastings, NE College 1952-1953. Married Bonnie-Lou Peters (my next door neighbor) in 1953.

Joined the Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) at the Grand Island (GRI) INSAC in September 1953 as an ATC Specialist. Transferred to Indianapolis, Indiana ARTCC in late 1954 as a journey level air traffic controller. Moved to NAFEC in Atlantic City, NJ in 1960 where I was involved with ATC
simulations and advanced ATC System concepts. Transferred to FAA HQ in Washington, D.C. in 1965 (our last FAA move) where I spent 17 years with the Systems Research & Development Service.

After retiring from the FAA in late 1982, I was employed by the Systems Requirement and Services Associates supporting the FAA National Airspace Program. In 1990 I joined Martin Marietta Corp. as a Senior Systems Analyst supporting the FAA in the development and maintenance of a Congressional mandated Capital Investment Plan.

I really retired in 1992 and begin doing the fun things that I always wanted to do. Became a railroad engineer, riverboat captain, master wood sculpture, and completed my college degree (Summa Cum Laude) in 1998. A member of Phi Theta Kappa.

In 1999 I left the railroad and enrolled in a stain and lead glass program. I am completely immersed in this extremely gratifying new adventure. I highly recommend this activity as a hobby or a profession for retirees.

My wife, Bonnie-Lou, a retired model, teacher, real estate agent and insurance adjuster, and I live in Williamsburg, Virginia. We have a daughter who lives in Northern Virginia with her husband and our three grandchildren and our son a geologist who is married and lives in Golden, Colorado.

Hope this helps to restore the lost resumes.
