Your life since 1963: After graduation I joined the Navy.
Served 5 years with 4 Vietnam tours. Discharged in 1968 and returned to Clear Lake. Worked at Mercy
Hospital and attended NIACC, graduating in 1972. Went to UNI, graduating in 1974. Worked as an accountant
in Mason City until 1977, then moved to Montana. Owned and operated a White Water Rafting Company until
1980. Worked for a hospital in Whitefish, MT and learned to fly. Worked as a charter pilot in Montana
until 1995, then went to Alaska. In Bethal, I've been flying passengers and cargo and US Mail. Was
married for 9 years, divorced in 1990. Currently living with Joanne for the last 7 years in an Eskimo
village on the Yukon River. Haven't been back to Iowa since 1994. My sister still lives in Clear Lake
so hope to come back sometime. My brother and mother live in Montana and I see them about once a year.
Your life now: I live on the Yukon River and I work in Bethel, Alaska for a commuter airline
flying two weeks on and one week off moving passengers, cargo and US Mail. Really like the work. During
my time off, fishing all year round and hunting. As there are no roads in western Alaska, all travel
is done by airplane, boats and snow machines.
