Comments

I remember Mrs. Crutchfield and advanced algebra. One of her favorite comments when things appeared to be getting out of hand was, "I will not cast my pearls before swine!", in that special voice of hers. She was really quite a lady. I also remember Mr. McCorkle, my history teacher, he was the only teacher who said anything good about me. He told me I had a unusual capacity to see both sides of an issue and that it would be good for me in the future. I'm still working on finding out about that.

School Story

After graduation I attended UF and was then called up on active duty in the Navy. Got out in 1967 and went back to UF. Eventually went to work for JEA in Jacksonville then moved on to work for Westinghouse as an field service engineer commissioning steam turbine control systems in nuclear power plants in Taiwan, Spain, France & Brazil. I was fortunate to meet my wonderful wife Sonja in Taiwan during this time. We have been married now for 40 years this year and have two daughters, Marie & Jennifer.

Danny & I grew up across the street from one another. He was my best friend for many years. We played baseball and football together in his front yard growing up and then again at Landon along with playing a lot of stickball in the street. We'd watch baseball and play board games inside. Dan was a good hearted, good natured romantic, a real pleasure to be with, a good friend. I don't think he had a mean bone in his body. I remember in high school we were out one night in his Mom's green '51 Plymouth and Danny was driving. There was a light rain and the roads were slick. We were going down Spring Park Rd and came into a curve, then suddenly spun around a complete 360 and amazingly continued on our way like nothing had happened.  It still amazes me when I think about it today. Danny was a pretty good pitcher in baseball. I remember he was the only guy I knew of who could throw a knuckleball, a lot of them strikes. I remember seeing that ball bounce around in the air heading toward me at the plate. There was no way you could hit it. We reconnected when I was working for Westinghouse in PA and he was the manager of the Elmira Suns in upstate NY. He came down and spent a few days with us in Aston. I didn't see Dan again until our 50th reunion. After that we stayed in touch until this year when I couldn't get ahold of him by email or phone due to his declining health.
