Comments:

I retired from the La Crosse Fire Department on December 13,2007 after 32 plus years of service. During the last 14 years I was Division Chief Of Training for the Department. Our department consists of 95 career firefighters which are split into three shifts. Probably my most memorable event during my career was working with the Secret Service during President Bushes 2006 presidential campaign. It was during his visit to Copeland Park that I was able to meet him and have a picture taken with him shaking my hand. ( And no he didn't ask for advice) I did ask him to continue support for the Fire Service and he acknowledge to me that he would. Well its been a great experience in working with the committee to setup this 40th year reunion. I hope all of you that are coming have a great time and for those who couldn't make it this time don't forget your 45th is only 1 years away. See you then

Happy Birthday. I always enjoyed kicking the SPMBands basketball team. Also remember you recruiting me our Freshman year which went on to win the hoops tournament at the Y. I think it was a Christmas tourney.
