After graduation from Watterson, I enrolled at Ohio State to study pharmacy as that was my family business. After graduation from OSU, I worked in one of my family’s stores until conditions changed and the store lease was lost resulting in the store closing. At that point I took a job in mail-order pharmacy where I’m still employed after 33 years.
My real passion in life was to become a radio DJ, not a pharmacist. Radio DJs tend to get fired a lot and move around, but that was not me. However when disco started, mobile DJs started coming of age and since I already had a large record collection, I seized the opportunity doing weddings, reunions, singles dances and school dances of which I found myself back at Watterson hired by John Durant to do a couple of school dances. Circumstances changed by the early 90s and I found I no longer was having fun as a DJ since there was more work involved and the music itself was changing, so I retired, but still collect old records which are eating me out of house and home.
In recent years I’ve enjoyed traveling and have visited more than 30 countries. I dated several girls but things never worked out for a permanent relationship. Maybe I was too busy. Looking forward to seeing everyone at the upcoming reunion
