After leaving SHS in '65, I attended Wentworth Institute in Boston for 2 years, then enlisted in the Army from 1967-1970. I was in Vietnam from April '68 - June '69 with the Corps of Engineers building a highway from Nha Trang to Phan Rang. After leaving the Army in July '70, I attended The George Washington University, received a BS in Civil Engineering in 1973.

Upon graduation, I was hired by the D.C. Department of General Services in Washington, D.C., where I worked as a Civil and later Structural Engineer. My office was responsible for construction and repair of all of the city-owned buildings in Washington (outside of the federal sector.) I was resident engineer for the construction of the reviewing and media stands for the Inaugural Parades for Presidents Reagan, Bush and Clinton. 

In 1994, I accepted a position as Chief of the Civil and Structural Design Branch for the D.C. Water and Sewer Authority, where I am presently employed. My branch is responsible for overseeing the design of the nation's largest advanced wastewater treatment plant.

While in college, I met Fran Heck, who was attending Hood College in Frederick, MD. Fran and I were married in 1974. We have children, Beth (21) and Tom (18). Beth is a Fourth-year student at the University of Virginia, majoring in biology and environmental science. Tom starts in the fall at James Madison University, and plans to major in secondary education. Fran is a preschool teacher here in Vienna.

Feel free to use this information as you wish. I'd like to hear more about you, and the others as well. I still have family members in the Sharon area, and we come up there occasionally. We might be able to attend the reunion in the spring.
