My wife, Carolyn, and I have been married for 42 years and have two married children and five grandchildren. We live in Northboro and enjoy retirement, trying to keep up with the grandkids.
My favorite hobby is cross-country skiing, but I also enjoy biking, kayaking, hiking and playing golf. Our favorite vacation sites are throughout New England, and traveling to Italy.
My favorite memory of Wachusett is Mrs. Creamer’s math class.

I married John Byron a few years after graduation- he was in the Coast Guard, so we began our married life in New Orleans, where we lived for 2 years. We have on daughter, born on Nantucket (Coast Guard) and two lovely grandchildren. I retired from a physician group private office in 2005 where I had worked since 1986.
Currently, I do some volunteering in the area, in addition to helping out with the grandkids.
We are both retired, but busy with volunteer jobs (sometimes we work for food).....Also there are the grandchildren, who we care for on days off from school, and school vacations...they take care of any spare time we have, and also any leftover money we might have.........

After college & marriage, Pam assisted me through law school. Upon our return to Holden, we raised two beautiful daughters. During that time, in addition to work, I served on a number of Boards including several that were health focused. From that experience, I developed relationships that led to my engagement in health technology. I currently serve on several health related Boards which benefit the medically underserved.
Most important to us are our family, friends, and colleagues.
We relocated to Ogunquit permanently several years ago and especially enjoy our four grandchildren.
What a great job the Reunion Committee has done! We thank and congratulate you all for your terrific work.
