MY WORK LIFE
1966-2013
MY BASIC WORK LIFE DECISIONS WERE MADE IN ORDER TO SOLVE A PROBLEM.

BEGINNING IN 1961 AND CONTINUING THROUGH MY TWELTH, THIRTEENTH AND
FOURTEENTH YEARS CERTAIN OF MY RELATIVES (MY GRANDMOTHER COLE,
GRANDMOTHER COOPER, AUNT VIOLA AND UNCLE THOMAS) WOULD CONSISTENTLY
INQUIRE OF ME, BOY, WHATCHA GONNA BE WHEN YOU GROW UP?, YOU GONNA BE
GROWN SOON AND YOUVE GOT TO DECIDE WHAT YOU GONNA DO WITH YOUR LIFE!,
HAVE YOU DECIDED WHAT YOURE GONNA BE YET?.
ONE DAY AT ROSEWELL KENT JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL, I DECIDED THAT I HAD HAD
ENOUGH OF THIS CONSTANT BADGERING, SO DURING ONE OF MY STUDY HALL
PERIODS IN THE SCHOOL LIBRARY, I BEGAN MY SEARCH FOR A CAREER.

I LOOKED AT TUNNEL BUILDING, MINING, STRUCTURAL STEEL DESIGN, MASONRY
DESIGN, AVIATION, BRIDGE BUILDING ELECTRONICS, CARPENTRY, LAW
ENFORCEMENT, AUTO REPAIR, SHIPBUILDING AND A HOST OF OTHER POSSIBILITIES.

FOR MORE THAN TWO YEARS, TRY AS I MIGHT; I COULD NOT DECIDE WHAT I WANTED
TO BE OR DO.
ONE DAY MY MOTHER MADE A SUGGESTION; YOU OUGHT TO CONSIDER HAVING
THREE THINGS TO DO IN LIFE, ONE THAT YOU DO FOR THE LORD, ANOTHER THAT
YOU DO TO MAKE MONEY AND THE THIRD THING YOU DO BECAUSE YOU REALLY LIKE
DOING IT.  SHE WENT FURTHER WITH THIS IDEA; IF YOU FAIL AT ONE THING, YOULL
HAVE TWO OTHERS THAT YOU CAN BE SUCCESSFUL AT.  IF YOU FAIL AT TWO THINGS
YOULL HAVE ONE LAST THING TO BE SUCCESSFUL WITH. IF THE THREE THINGS YOU
DECIDE UPON ARE DIVERSE FROM ONE ANOTHER, FAIRLURE AT ALL THREE AT THE
SAME TIME WILL BE HIGHLY UNLIKELY.
I SEIZED UPON THIS IDEA AND BY SEPTEMBER 1965, AS I BEGAN MY STUDIES AT
HOWER VOCATION HIGH SCHOOL SPECIALIZING IN DRAFTIG, THE DIE WAS CAST:

I ACCEPTED JESUS CHRIST AS MY SAVIOR AND EMBARKED ON CHRISTIAN
EDUCATION (AT MOODY BIBLE INSTITITE) AS MY CHOICE FOR THE LORD.

MY SECOND CHOICE WAS STRUCTURAL AND MECHANICAL DESIGN (WITH PPG
INDUSTRIES CHEMICAL DIVISION AND LATER WITH THE PPG ARCHITECTURAL
METALS GROUP AND THE UNIVERSITY OF AKRON ) WITH A SUB-CHOICE OF
HYDRAULIC, PNUEMATIC AND MECHANICAL INSTRUMENTATION (WITH HONEYWELL
COMMERCIAL HVAC SYSTEMS AND THE UNITED STATES NAVY.

LAST AND CERTAINLY NOT LEAST I DECIDED UPON A NIKON PHOTOGRAPHY
BUSINESS WHICH FLOURISHED FOR 37 SUCCESSFUL YEARS.
THE CLOSING DECADE OF MY WORK LIFE AT THE CITY OF GREENSBORO WATER
RESOURCES UTILITIES GROUP AS UTILITIES SERVICES SUPERVISOR HAS BEEN AN
ENJOYABLE LANDING APPROACH TO RETIREMENT WITH RUNWAY 7-WEST AT HILO,
HAWAII AS MY FINAL DESTINATION.

order sorted by last name. For the ladies I will use their married name
and then cross reference for their maiden name(When Possible).
