Yes! Attending Reunion

Lee Peckarsky, my college roommate in Madison, introduced me to my wife of 36 years. We have enjoyed a great marriage. I studied law after college. This was a good career choice for me. My work gets me into a courtroom quite often. I have limited my practice to civil litigation including medical malpractice. I am most proud of our two daughters who have probably taught us more than we taught them. Eighteen months ago we were blessed with a grandson. Since our daughter married a Dane travel has become an enjoyable and important part of our lives.

School Story:

I've always been proud to tell people that I graduated from Washington in 1969. Jim Kearney, who attempted to teach English to many of us, has since leaving Washington taught at University School and Marquette High (two prestigious schools). He was once quoted as saying that the Washington High School class of 69 was the best class he ever taught. Even if not true you have to admit it is a great story. Other than failing homeroom(Mr. Stamm was demanding and Lynn Gruebling was always fun to talk to) my memories of high school are good.

How often do you get back to Milwaukee, or are you still living in the area?

We live on North Lake. Visitors are always welcome.

What did you always want to do that you haven’t done yet?

Play golf at a high level.... my prospects of achieving that goal don't look good!
