About me

I moved to Littleton from Denver with my family in 1967. I have two sons and one daughter and my wife died two years ago. I lived for 37 years in a house on Panama Street. I lived in Southview Place Towers until it had a fire in April, and now I live in Highline Place Memory Care.

Climbing poles

I was born in Oklahoma but I've been in Colorado most of my life. We moved around a lot when I was a kid. We moved to Arizona and then to Colorado. I lived over on the Western Slope for a long time. I still have a lot of family in the Grand Junction area. I worked for AT&T as a lineman, climbing poles, and at the steel mill in Pueblo. I worked for 36 years for Gates Rubber, first at the plant on what's now Mineral Avenue and I ended up in Montbello at the warehouse.

For fun

We used to camp a lot at Rampart Range, up in the mountains. I rode motorcycles and trailbikes and four-wheelers up until I was 80. I liked the freedom of riding. My bike was street-legal but I never did that much riding on the street. I had a camping trailer and always took the bike along. I also loved to garden. I grew tomatoes and peppers and other vegetables.
