School Story:

Always interested in music. Played bass with a band in 1965 and 1966 known as the Malibus with Rick Lavery, Phil Circely, Nick Esworthy and Clarence McGure. Played drums for the American Legion Drum And Bugle Corp. then taught drums with the Marion Cadets. Was in the Choir all 3 years of high school and really enjoyed signing. Was in the Madrigals my senior year.


Went to work for the USAF at the Air Base and worked up to training leader when the base closed. Then went to work for Boeing until laid off in 2000. Had gone back to school to earn my Paramedic cert in 1975 and joined Heath FD as a volunteer. When I was laid off by Boeing, I went to work for a private service in Columbus as a paramedic. I held the rank of Lieutenant and supervised approx 24 EMT's and Paramedic's on my shift. I went back to school at Columbus State and received my Critical Care Transport cert and did MICU transports from hospital to hospital of critical patients. I also teach paramedics at Columbus State as a preceptor in the paramedic program. I also teach Advanced Cardiac Life Support and CPR as an Instructor/Trainer.
I am the Operations Supervisor for EMS at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium and supervise 50 EMTs and Paramedic.
I was in the Army in 1967 to 1970 and was in Korea. I worked on the Nike Hercules nuclear missile as a guidance system repair tech. I was then sent to Fort Bliss, Texas where I met my wife of 46 years. She was an Army brat and a skater with the Holiday on Ice shows. We have 3 children, 3 grandchildren and several kids that somehow just followed my other kids home. We somehow adopted them in name only but they still think they live with us. We built a home in Pickerington in 2000. In my spare time I do woodworking and build cabinets and whatever my wife wants me to build. ie: decks, shelves, sewing room, sand boxes,,,,,you get the idea. We also love to travel. Especially to Puerto Rico. Great place to relax. I would welcome any and all to contact me anytime. We love to play cards, go to fairs and festivals and travel. Contact me on e-mail at or at

Sherman. Glad to hear your still kicking. I also see you still have most of your hair. Mines been slowly going south. So, the big question is, Why Thailand? I was there in 68 as part of an inspection tour of missile bases for the Army. Loved it there. Didn't like Nam, Korea or Japan. To many people. Wife and I are retiring next year to Ponce' Puerto Rico. Nice and warm. Keep in touch. Good to hear from you.

What you mean escapades? They were great times. Tell Gary I still remember making taffy in his moms kitchen.
