Collected Tales from our Life's Journey's

Where have you been? and what have you been doing? - - - family, school, career, pastimes, good times, etc.

I graduated Eastmoor at age 16 and turned 18 at the height of the Vietnam War.  I was already active in the antiwar movement and publicly refused to register for the draft.  The weekend before my trial for violation of the Selective Service Act I first really noticed Joan Trey, a college acquaintance.  She visited me regularly during the year and a half I was in prison and helped me adapt when I got out.  We were married in 1973 and moved to Cleveland when she started medical school in 1976.  I worked as a safety and health specialist for OSHA and the United Rubber Workers Union, then, in 1983, with two small children and Joan still in training I quit my good paying job and started medical school myself.  I served as director of several occupational health programs in the Cleveland area.  I worked as medical director for a workers’ compensation managed care organization from 1997-2017, and 2009-2017 caring for employees of the Cleveland VA.  Now I’m almost retired, working on-line about one-half-day per week as a consultant to the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation.  Joan and I have two great boys, Nathan and Josh (Google his technology articles) two beautiful daughters-in-law and three wonderful grandchildren.  I’m still catching up on years of non-medical reading I never quite got around to while working, and Joan and I travel when COVID permits.  I loved seeing many of you at the 56th Reunion!
