Comments:

Served two years !954-56 with the Fourth Infantry Division Band in Frankfurt Germany.
Graduated 1963 with a PhD in Chemistry, U of Wisc.
Employed 1963-68 Monsanto Chemical Company
1968-1997 Professor of Chemistry, Univ. of N Dakota
Retired May 1997 and spent the next year rebuilding my basement after the Flood in Grand Forks, ND.
Moved to Newark Ohio in November 2001 in order to be near our Sons and their families (5 grandchildren). After moving to Newark, my wife and I have spent the past 12 years doing volunteer work. I started doing taxes with the AARP, gardening, and taking charge of the church building and grounds upkeep. With the advent of Parkinson's disease with my wife,Mary, we have become active in the local Parkinson Support Group. Mary's Parkinson problems have almost put her in a wheel chair. I am getting our bathroom setup for that possibility. We planned well because our son and his wife live only 2 miles away. Rick is a doctor and he is a great help with Mary.

Merry Christmas to Everyone for 2015. This is our family Swiss Tree which we put up every year. Baltisberger is of Swiss Origin and the van in the front of the tree was taken by friends in Switzerland. Apparently these Baltisberger's sold sandwiches and pop out of the rear of the van.

Happy Birthday, Packy, I miss seeing you after all these years. I don't want to review all the trouble we got into, but it was good to have you as a friend. I hope your health is good. I am in good health. I have to be because all my time is taken up caring for my wife who has Parkinson's disease in its eighth year.

Happy Birthday Darol. I know your birthday is a few days away, but this is close enough. I hope your health is good, mine is. Thank god because I have to take full time care of my wife, who is almost in a wheel chair all the time. If anyone else reads this and has a parkinson problem, let me know I have been at the defense of the disease for eight years now.
