After graduation from high school, I went on a harvest crew that summer. When I got home, I joined the army with David Dow. I was stationed at Oak Mountain in San Fernando Valley California for 2 years, then served 1 year in Korea at an Air Defense Command there. Came home in the fall of 1963 and went to work for Bill Sturdevant Plumbing for 10 years. Dad opened Chodrick Plumbing and I worked for him for 10 years. I took over the business when he retired and still operate it now.
Met my wife, Wynne in October 1965 and married in May 1966. We have two daughters. Shelly is a legal secretary, married to Jim Hager. They have grandson A.J. and step-grandchildren, Michael,Eli and Jill, and 3 step-greatgrand children. Our daughter Marla is a kindergarten teacher, married to Ryan Fuxa,drug dog officer for EPD. They have our two grandsons, Tucker and Wyatt. I enjoy hunting elk in Colorado every year. I am an officer in Garfield Rifle Association. We have lived in Enid all our married life, have a RV and love to go camping and enjoy riding ATV.
