What have I been doing for the last 40 years?:


Loralee and I have been married 39 years. We have 2 wonderful daughters, Renee and Laurette. We have two beautiful grandchildren with another being born today July 19. We are lucky that they all live within a mile of us and get to see them every day.

We were dairy farmers until 1994 when we sold our dairy and began a John Deere dealership at Gallipolis. In 2003 we added another location in Huntington, WV and in 2004 purchased a location in Greenup, KY. We travel all we can as time allows. We like to go to Put in Bay on South Bass Island in Lake Erie several times each summer and take short trips to Saint Augustine and Key West Florida in the colder months. We also like to go to Blowing Rock, NC and Gatlinburg, TN in the summer if we can. We just adopted an original 1967 Impala convertible to cruise in. If you remember, I had a 67 Impala in high school but don't know what happened to it. I sold it for $750 if I remember correctly. Now, that seems pretty dumb. They are worth much more now.

As with everyone, we have had good times and sad times through the years. We have both lost both parents.

We truly have a wonderful life.

Hope to see you all at the 40th year reunion.
