Comments:

I like this idea of this web site. I had misssed all reunions since the 25th and want to get to the next one.

I had worked at Emory University Hospital Midtown (formally Emory Crawford Long Hospital) from 1978-2016 as a Urologist. Since 1985 I practiced solo until Aug. 2009. I was then employed by The Jenkins Clinic, a non-for-profit medical organization which was all Urology and after 6 years it was given to Piedmont Healthcare in 2016.

Much of my career has been involved with teaching residences in Urology from Emory and Chief of Urology at Emory University Hospital Midtown. Since early 2016 was exciting while working for Piedmont Healthcare and as that allowed me to slow down in preparation for retirement July 1, 2018.

I have one son, Chris who is a CPA in Atlanta. He is still single. We wish for grandchildren!

My wife and I downsized in 2005 to a small yard and smaller house. We live in community of Atlanta called Vinings now.

School Story:

Most of my fun at RHHS focused around all the fun that I had with the girls in the class... like Donna Kay Adams, Glenna Baker, Mary Beckham, JoAnn Busbee, Sandra Coleman, Rita Freed, Cynthia Giles, Lucetta McCausland, Sue Leslie, Tina Neely, Margaet Harper, Margaret Maddox, Janet Roberts, Marilyn Shull, Carol Wallace and Kay Williams, just to name a few!

I enjoyed some of the guy (although most were too serious....William Sibley, Jimmy Dover, Stan Watson, Harry Tinsley, Bill Williams, and Tommy Faile are most memorable.

Your Bucket List (Which items on your list have you done and which are left to be completed?)

I have a long list of travel, much has been done, much more planned as I retire July 1, 2018.

What model & year car did you drive in '65?

a 1962 Falcon, anemic car.
