I was born in 1938 in Algona, Iowa. (No, scratch that, too far back.)
After high school, I spent a year at Luther with some other Lakers and then transferred to MCJC where I was with more Lakers- maybe that was a mistake (especially that memorable night in rural Charles City).
My Junior and Senior years were at the University of Iowa again with some Lakers. In 1961 I married Sherry Oleson of Mason City. (The best move I ever made.)
I began teaching in Garden Grove, Iowa and one year was enough of that- Garden Grove, not teaching. We came home to Clear Lake and I earned enough money to start grad school at SCI (UNI). in 1964 I taught and coached in Guthrie Center, Iowa. Two years later we moved to Perry, Iowa where I again taught and coached for two years. In 1967 we moved to Austin, Minnesota where I taught both high school, college and coached until 1998 when I retired.
Since retirement I do volunteer work for our church and the hospital. I also was the country coordinator for their mentoring program. In 2000 the voters wanted to get me off the streets so they elected me to the school board. Sherry and I have three sons and can you believe six granddaughters!
