Retired after 22 years, and worked as a sub-system manager on the Space Shuttle Program. Work involved the Thrust Vector Control (steering system) of the shuttle boosters. Had enough of programming, engineering, budgeting, briefings, etc., so I retired again in 1996. Now I work when I feel like it. So far, we’ve been to Russia, Romania, Hungary, Germany, Canada, and Bermuda. In Germany, had occasion to talk to some Wehrmacht Panzer veterans and decided I was born too late.

In May 2009 I Iost my wife, Kathy, to multiple myeloma after a two year struggle. Unfortunately, like more of us in '61 in ever increasing numbers, both husbands and wives, a death leaves a hole in our lives which seems difficult to fill. I mitigate my loss with time spent with my wonderful grandchildren, Madelyn (10) and Matthew (7), the children of my daughter, Kristine. and husband ,Mark. Along with many of you grandparents out there, I find great pleasure and delight in their company. They keep me young. Additionally, I like to travel to out of the way places, either alone or with my son, Erich, who is an excellent travelling companion and enjoys, as I do, visiting the less mundane places in this world. And so life proceeds at ever increasing speed, but with many pleasurable events at which to look forward.
