It was back on the farm after graduation. Then in Jan of ’64 Uncle Sam decided I needed a 2 year vacation in the Army. After I was stationed permanently in Germany I returned home to get married & take my bride, Jean, back with me for the last 14 months. We did have a nice “honeymoon-vacation” traveling to several countries.
After returning to the farm we built our present home southwest of Lahoma in the fall of ’66. Farming & raising polled Hereford cattle has been good to us. I don’t go to work – I just get up & it is all around me! Jean considers herself a “farmher”. She is right there beside me working cattle, hauling hay, etc.
We raised 3 beautiful daughters.
Our oldest, Sara, is married to Enid’s newest assistant Chief-of-police, Bryan Skaggs. (hope if you meet up with him it’s a friendly matter!) Sara is a MaryKay director.
Our middle daughter, Katie, & her husband, Eric Schiltz, live in Evergreen, CO. He is in banking & she is in retail.
Our youngest, Penny, is an accountant busy trying to also raise a family. Her husband, Zac Watkins, is in farming & cattle also. They live in Carrier, OK. Their children are 5, 2, & 10 months. We get to see them often & spoil them good!.
Wish I could say I’m retired but not quite yet! We just keep busy at what we do. The good Lord has blessed us in so many ways. Each day is a new challenge & we definitely look to Him for our safety & protection.
Looking forward to seeing many familiar faces in Oct.
