I Retired from Patrick, as a Maj. on 1 July 1979. Bev and I have remained in the Patrick area since my military retirement. When I retired in 79 I was fed up with working in windowless Buildings, so, I went back to my farm roots., I Studied Ornamental Horticulture at our local community college and then worked in that field a few years before retiring again in the early 80's.

Bev and I have no children. We both enjoy gardening, I do a little cabinet making, Bev paints (oils and water colors) and we travel a bit. We cruise two or three times a year and visit relatives in England at least once a year.

Last November I obtained my first PC and am only now becoming proficient in turning it on and off. The rest of the operation is coming very slowly.

We missed the reunion last year but intend to make the next one. Hope to see all of you there.

Ollie, I don't have a scanner so I'm sending a Photo By snail mail.
