From the 40th reunion:
 
After graduating from WJ, I was headed off to Madison Wisconsin with my two buddies Rick Stiphout and Ray Stangeland. As fate would have it, I was unable to go, so I ended up working at Shrader Sound in Georgetown. It also left me a prime candidate for the draft and Nam. I was called in January of 67, but wasn't deemed fit enough for duty. The following fall I enrolled in UofMd where I went straight through in 4 years. Had a great time, became a radical on campus - attended numerous demonstrations - at the march on Washington - spent a good deal of time at the Varsity Grill - made some life long friends with Maryland basketball as the glue. After graduating from UofMd in 71 and lacking a direction, I got a job in construction just to earn some money to do some traveling. Headed to Europe with the idea to go where the wind was blowing. Turns out there was a strong wind heading east. While hitchhiking in Germany I was asked to drive a car to Afghanistan. I couldn't turn it down. Went on through Pakistan India and up to Nepal - very cool. Spent about 8 months, came home and headed west. Spent another 8 months working in a Christian commune in northern California and then back home. I have always called MD my home. In 75 I met my wife to be. We were married in 80 in the UofMd chapel and moved to the Mt Airy MD area, where we have been living ever since. In 82 we had a son, Aaron. At the time I was working at the French International School in Bethesda so it gave us the opportunity to immerse him and myself in the French language and culture. In 89 I went back o school to get my accounting degree and CPA. I have worked at a number of jobs in corporate accounting and am currently a consultant in finance helping to put Fannie Mae back together. In 2005 my wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at the Strong mansion on Sugarloaf Mountain - a good time was had by all. We enjoy bike riding and love the Eastern Shore. We have been spending at least a weekend in Oxford MD at the Robert Morris Inn every summer since we met.

Retired from INTELSAT, Washington DC (2004) 2015-12-09 15:43:04
After graduating from WJ, I spent 3 semesters in engineering school at U. of Md before dropping out and joining the Air Force in May 1968. From this experience I learned that going to college because everybody expects you to go to college, not because you're emotionally or academically ready, is a really bad idea. Anyway, I served two enlistments in the Air Force and learned a lot. I went to college classes through much of my time in the Air Force and graduated in 1976. I came back to the DC area, worked in Saudi Arabia in the summer of 1976 on a communications system for the Saudi royal family, and returned to the DC area where I begun my career in satellite communications engineering. After two years at COMSAT Labs in Maryland, I joined INTELSAT (International Telecommunications Satellite Organization) in NW DC and worked there in a variety of roles involving both communications satellites and the ground stations that manage the satellites in their orbits. I retired from INTELSAT at the end of 2003 and moved to Corpus Christi on the south Texas Gulf Coast in the spring of 2004 in order to be near my father's family, cotton farmers and cattle ranchers. That worked well until my son moved to Denver, got married and presented me with a beautiful granddaughter. Since I wanted to be a "hands-on grandpa", I moved to the Denver area in the spring of 2009, where I now live close enough to my son's family that we can get together frequently. Life is good in Colorado! I volunteer at the Wings Over The Rockies Air & Space Museum in Denver, located on the former Lowry Air Force Base where I went to Air Force tech school in 1968 and 1969, so this truly feels like "coming home again". I'm still an active amateur ("ham") radio operator like I was at WJ, and in 1996 I took up my newest and favorite hobby, scuba diving. I've dived in Hawaii, on the Great Barrier Reef and in several places in the Caribbean, and I really enjoy being in the beautiful underwater world that is truly the basis for all life on Earth. I've done a bit of traveling both for work and for vacations, notably working in Saudi Arabia and Italy and vacationing in Australia and Europe. I met my sweetheart, Libby, on a Hawaii cruise in 2013, and now we spend summers here in Colorado and winters at her nice home in Arizona. She's darling and she takes great care of me, but I can't marry her because both of her husbands died of cancer, and I don't want to die of cancer! I guess I should say that life is good in both Colorado AND Arizona, since we can avoid the extreme summer heat of southern Arizona and the typical cold winters of the Denver area. We really enjoy our trips to the beautiful high country here in Colorado, where the mountains are breathtaking, literally, since the altitude is often over 11,000 feet. (We don't run when we're up there!) It's quite a difference from my life in Texas, where I lived 20 feet above sea level; I now live in the Colorado "low country" at "only" 5,600 foot elevation. So I guess that brings up to date, as of this afternoon in May 2015. Send Robert a MessageSend Robert a Message

High School was an inconvenient necessity for me at the time.  Requiring only my senior English class to graduate during my senior year, I completed that at night school while attending nursing school at Suburban Hospital.    After working in the ICU for a year I decided to continue my education and attended BYU.  During my first semester I met my first husband.  Nursing required a concrete schedule so after the first two years and two children with the challenge of balancing work, babies and an inflexible schedule, I relinquished and curtailed my education.    Three babies in 3 1/2 years, supporting my former husband through undergrad and Podiatry school; then managing his office preceded my divorce after 21 years of marriage.    Moving from Oregon back to Maryland and then to complete my BSN; worked at Chestnut Lodge Hospital; received the VA scholarship necessitating fulfilling commitment to work at the DC VAMC while completing my MSN in psych-mental health and certification as a psychotherapist.    Then I hung my "shingle" as a solo practitioner; volunteered for the American Red Cross on Sept 11, 2001 becoming a Disaster Mental Health Services Manager & Disaster Health Services volunteer with assorted other great volunteer opportunities.  My new husband accepted a new position in Houston, TX - so there we go.  As it is traumatic and a challenge for individuals living with a serious psychiatric brain disorder to transition to a new therapist, I determined to not start a new practice in Houston.  Instead, I realized the need for a non-profit organization dedicated to improving lives affected by a schizophrenia-related brain disorder.  So, here I am now, the Executive Director for Schizophrenia and Related Disorders Alliance of America (SARDAA).  I now work longer hours for no financial pay but pay to work.  SARDAA now has a global reach providing support for individuals living with a serious psychiatric diagnosis and their loved ones.    It is a distinct pleasure and honor to know so many very special people who are vulnerable, kind, altruistic and often brilliant and successful while challenged with the symptoms of a severe brain disorder.    My hero of a husband and I have six children and thirteen grandchildren spread around from Portland, OR - DC area - Florida.  One of my grandsons will be attending WJ next year with his two brothers following in years to come.  Playing bass in the orchestra was one of the highlights of my high school experience.  Any of you who played in the orchestra remember that I wasn't any good, but it's now fun that my granddaughter is playing bass in her school orchestra and is actually good.
