I am a man who feels, who loves others and knows the pain of loss. At 65 years of age have seem changes made in our country that spells out loss rather than gain. I love God, my family and my country in that order and all, I feel, are my responsibility. I've had a reasonably good life but I also have my regrets. I had a successful 30 years with one employer, and actually miss working now that I am retired. I love music, have taught musical instruments, played trumpet in school and started several brass groups, directed choir for 16 years and sang in a mens quartet foe 23 years. I now build wood products for friends to help them out and the price is going out for coffee in the morning(and sometimes I pick up the tab!)
I've been married 45 years, love my wife (she's the love of my life) my best friend and my helpmeet. We met in highschool in 1965 ,got engaged in 1966 and we were married October 3,1967.
