WOW! After reading many of your profiles, I've realized my life has not been so exciting. Lets see.. I graduated from Ohio State with a degree in accounting. While taking a hiatus from tOSU, I spent two years in the Army Finance Corps. During my year in Vietnam, I was probably the only person you know who attended a computer programming school in Saigon. After graduation, got married, moved to Denver to ski, got divorced, then married my present wife, Barb, in 1983. Was recruited into an IT management position with what was then Banc One in Columbus in 1988 and have been in Columbus since. I've also worked at Nationwide Insurance in IT and have been consulting in IT. I also worked as a technical trainer at Mt. Carmel Hospital helping to install a comprehensive medical records system.I'm now retired.

Barb is an art teacher. After graduation from Michigan State, she taught in Australia for 4 years, then moved to Denver where we met. In 1990 she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and is considered mildly affected. She currently works as a substitute teacher in the Dublin, OH schools, works with the state MS society on the Government Relations Committee, and helps plan the local MS Walk and Ride. She's an avid bicyclist (3000 miles last summer,) and rides in the Central Ohio Challenge (an MS ride) and also in Pelotonia, a large ride to raise money for tOSU Cancer Center.

Barb and I have two children. Eryn majored in Food Science at Cornell University and is now in product development and research with Wendy's here in Dublin, Oh. Our son Jordan majored in Supply Chain Management at Bowling Green State University is working for Avery-Dennison in Mentor, OH, doing purchasing and production planning and scheduling.

I am so sorry to hear of Mike's passing.  Mike was a dear friend through our years at Lomond, junior high and the high school. We spent many happy hours working together on the Shaker stage, he as stage manager, me as lighting manager. We worked together building sets for several productions through the years. Mike was a good guy, one of thr best. My heart goes out to Marilyn and the rest of his family.
