Bio

I attended Okla. A & M College and graduated with a BS Degree in Electrical Engineering. I worked with the IBM Corp. as a Customer Engineer for 36 years retiring in 1987. I had the privilege of servicing some of the first tube and transistor computers. During this period of time I had two boys, the first born in 1952 and the second in 1956. I have three grand children, two girls and a boy.
