After a long career as a professional hydrogeologist (groundwater geologist) my wife Mary (former recycling coordinator) and I are retired. Much work and personal life has involved travel: Panama, Mexico, Central America, Peru, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Argentina, much of Europe and Alaska and Canada (these last two being our favorites).
I spent 1962-64 in the Dominican Republic as a Peace Corps Volunteer. Since then much of my life has been devoted to groundwater supplies and groundwater contamination and protection studies in North America, South America and Central America. Eight years of my life were spent in the Spanish-speaking world as a geologist. Fluent in Spanish, with a smattering of French and German. Presently residing in Florida. Graduate of St. Louis University and University of Missouri.
To acknowledge my buddy sitting with me on the bench: that's my favorite cat (belonged to my daughter Jana) ... he has gone off to catnip heaven. Crowley loved guys!
