I was born in Waukegan, IL, went thru high school in Anchorage, Alaska and joined the United States Air Force at 18. I served for more than 28 years and was stationed in many states, Europe, Labrador and Guam. While stationed in Guam, I was sent to many Asian countries including Viet Nam.

I met my wife, Bessie, while learning to Square Dance in Atwater, CA. After a year of dancing and romancing, we married in September, 1965. We hardly settled down when I was reassigned to Guam. I was able to take my family with me and we really enjoyed the romance of the tropics.

While stationed in the US, we made a point of traveling to the entire local Square Dances and Round Dances we could find. We also went to every convention that was close or far to my station. We danced together over 40 years before my wife injured herself. She passed away in June 2009.

I started Line Dancing here in Sun City in September 2009 and look forward to every dance. My greatest joy besides dancing is helping new dancers learn the steps and routines of Line Dancing.
