Since High School:

I have been living in Geneva with my wonderful wife,
Gerry (nee Boesch, Conant High School Class of 1967).  
Gerry and I celebrated thirty-five years of marriage a
couple years ago.

For the last 20+ years, I have been working for the State
of Illinois’ Department of Human Services as a Business
Consultant.  I work with men and women who are visually
and hearing impaired.  My major responsibilities are to
train and consult with the people in the program on how
to run their own businesses and to be self supporting.

Gerry is the Firm Administrator for an employment and
labor law firm with offices throughout the Midwest.  Our
only son, Patrick, is a firefighter/paramedic for the City of
Glenview, Illinois.  Pat married Meagan Landwehr who  
teaches fourth grade at Prairie View School in Elgin.  We
are delighted that Pat and Meagan plan to purchase a
home in nearby St. Charles following their wedding.  Now
Gerry and I are proud grandparents to two beautiful
grandchildren (see below).

Overall, life has been good to Gerry and me, and we
hope to spend many more years together in our home
along the Fox River.  I am looking forward to seeing
everyone at the reunion in August.
