Married 3 2017-09-28 13:05:52
Hello OLD friends…. It is not surprising to me that so few of us have filled in a “profile” as yet. How do you condense 45 year of life into a couple of paragraphs? Can you even imagine all the combined adventures, experiences, trials, tribulations and places we have seen as a class? I would love to hear each and every story. My views; personal, professional, political, and religious, have been shaped from the paths I have taken, and the obstacles placed in my way.  Share a drink with me, and I will tell you mine! You will have to get Margo’s version from her!!
 
As for me, I guess I have been pretty lucky in life, so far. Mostly that stems from Margo “not” taking Cooper teachers, Mr. Strong and Mr. Armstrong’s advice back when we were seniors, to “stay away from Jim Stager” who they viewed as a “bad apple”. Well… after 42 years of marriage, 3 kids and soon to be 5 grandkids, we are still ♫Happy Together♫. Her smile brightens my day, and her kick under the table can still keep me in line. (With the blood thinners I am taking now, it can really leave an ugly mark!!) A few key years do stick out though, such as 1980 when I finished grad school, adopted our first child, Nathan, bought a house (with no money), started and closed a real estate company (remember the 21% interest rates), and finally fell into a career in computer sales (even before the IBM PC was created). In 1987, I accepted a position with Panasonic, who moved us to Chicago (yes I actually do have a few personal mob stories). What we expected to be a couple year adventure turned out to be our life long home. Go CUBS!! Singing is still a passion / hobby for me.  Multiple choirs, song leading at church, a little barbershop, etc., filled a lot of my time. Yes, it is true…I even have my own “groupies” from the “Spirit of Life Chorus” that I have been a member of for over 28 years. Granted they are all OVER 80, but ya gotta take what you can get! Top that Kim Jullian!! My overall health has been pretty good, but out of the blue I had 4 heart stents put in this spring. Surprise, surprise!!
 
Turns out that my real talent and joy in life is to be the best Grandpa in the world!

Wish you all the best!

Jim

Retired Married 2017-09-27 12:45:18
I married my significant other of 27 years, Warren Wagner, on December 21, 2016. We live in North Mankato. We make use of the Vine Adult Community Center on (an almost) daily basis for exercise classes, use of the walking track, warm water pool, and fitness center with air resistance weight machines. I've been retired from the MN Security Hospital in St. Peter for almost 8 years now. We continue to travel, just returning from a trip to Kauai, Hawaii. Our love of canoeing has not slowed down, along with playing disc golf, and many other outdoor pursuits. Send Peggy  a MessageSend Peggy a Message

Accountant Married 2 2017-09-27 10:38:50

I’ve only ever made it to one class reunion, the first one back in 1977, and unfortunately will miss this year’s as well.  I do hope you all have a wonderful time, and I’ll do my best to attend the 50th reunion in 2022.

 

I’ve lived mainly in Suffolk, England over the past 34 years, but have only recently returned from my second stint of three years in Gibraltar, which required a daily walk across the runway as my commute to work.  My wife Kim and I have been married for 31 years and have two sons, one now living in Spain, and the younger one currently back home, but hopefully not for too long!  I trained here in the UK as a chartered accountant and have spent most of my career in the insurance sector, working in both broking and underwriting, and alternating between finance and risk roles.

Product Development Widowed 3 2017-09-26 12:08:06
   A lot has happened in the last five years. I lost my wife/ significant other of almost 40 years. Kari was the most amazing doctor/ human being. Darrel Sohn and John Tobin, teachers, wrestling coaches and mentors at Cooper both passed away. We were lucky as a class to have so many great teachers.
   I have three amazing children. A social worker, a policeman, and a scientist.  As a family we lived in Hawaii, Arizona and Minnesota and travelled a lot to Europe. I have had a great career developing products for several companies and was lucky to be able to fit in a stint as a house husband and raise the children for many years in Hawaii. Currently, I split my time between Minnesota and Arizona.
