Sue and I met at Rockwell in the early 1970’s but both of us were married. We got together again 1985 on the Space Station proposal. We married in March of 1988.
We retired in March of 2007 after 75 years with the Boeing Company. Retirement is the point where a person stops employment completely. While most people worry about “adjusting to retired life” we fell into it immediately. The next day would be a proper time!
We were so busy these days that I am often tickled by the thought of going back to work to rest (not!). Part of retirement is working on our web site which is a collection of humor and observations about retirement (aka being old). Please enjoy!
The Lord took my precious Sue in February of 2020 and I was devastated having lost my sidekick of 35 years!
Sue told me in no uncertain terms that should something happen, either of us should move on with the support of our families.
In July of 2020, I asked a mutual friend out to dinner. Dr. Mary Côté, Sue, and I have known each other for almost two decades. The dinner was just to be a simple “hey, how’s it going?” but over the past year, it blossomed into a full-scale romance. On the one-year anniversary of our first “date”, we got married at the same restaurant with a small group of friends and family.
