Comments:

Married my high school sweat heart, went to college, raised 2 great kids, spent half of my working career at the McLean County Regional Planning Commission and the other half at the City of Bloomington Engineering Department retiring at the end of 2008. Also ran a small one man freelance commercial art and sign business for several years. I enjoy woodworking, and playing acoustic music and spending time with family and friends. I have been lucky enough to still be married to the same girl for 39 yrs. Hasn't always been easy but it sure has been nice.
I would like to hear from any of my classmates and I hope and pray things are going well for all of you. We have already lost far to many friends from the class of 1971 so hey, take care of yourselves so I can see you in August!

School Story:

Smokin' in the boys room! A bad habit that took me well into adulthood to shake but the comradeship and social connections made while committing that crime and watching out for each others backs is a good memory. Even the teachers seemed to always give you enough time to snuff em' out so they didn't have to bust anybody. I just wish I had the money back I waisted on those things!

Bill, I have always been happy that you married your high school sweetheart, Bonnie. Her family were such good and kind people. She has always been a treasure. You have been blessed having Bonnie in your life and having your two children. Blessings to you Bill.
