Better late than never....finally getting around to putting something down after semi working on the committee.
Since high school I went to college and got my teaching degree. I taught in CA for 5 years then came back to the Pacific Northwest to teach for Clover Park School District. It was fun teaching alongside my former teachers!!! Especially when I became a remedial math specialist and Hal Cross was my supervisor!
I took early retirement when I turned 50 and spent time with my mother who had cancer.
Then a new opportunity came to me to manage a Christmas store. That was so much fun. I did that for 10 years.
I am now having fun playing with emeralds, rubies, diamonds and other gem stones in the fine jewelry department of Macy's in the Tacoma Mall. This is a fun hobby that I get paid to do. Come see me for that special gift!
I have one daughter who lives in Anacortes and three granddaughters, and a stepson in Vancouver who has three children.
Life is great!

Retired Married 2 2012-08-06 19:56:51Hey everyone, I don't know about you CP alums, but coming up with a biography of what we all have been up to for the past half a century seems a bit self serving and strange. It reminds me of that old TV show "This Is Your Life" or in some cases that Clint Eastwood movie, "The Good, Bad, and the Ugly". However, in the spirit of celebrating our big reunion event here's a snapshot of my "Good" activities for the past fifty years. Accepted and attended Pacific Univerity. Earned a BA degree in political science/history. Attended Northwest Law School, now is Lewis & Clark Law School, for one year. Attended Portland State University Grad School for one year. Offered a job at The Oregonian Publishing Co. newspaper spending 25 fun years involved in the advertising/Marketing side of the paper. I then retired and started involvement in my own business with a sit down Espresso shop located close to the Portland Airport. Spent the last twelve years having a great time learning how to run a business. Most challenging. I just retired for the second time and am learning to enjoy a life of leisure.
On a personal note, I am married to a wonderful woman, Mary Kay, who has put up with my goofy nature for years. I have two grown up kids and two granddaughters.
My future plans are flexible. I hope to do some more cruising and more time at our beach place on the Oregon Coast. Perhaps you guys could give me some other ideas.
Well, I've left out a bunch, but that's it in a nutshell for now. Overall, things have been pretty darn good. The "Bad" and "Ugly" has been minimal.
I hope the Reunion Committee will have name tags for everyone. I fear we don't look quite the same as we did in our yearbook.
Am looking forward to seeing everyone. I'm convinced that the 1961 class was the best class that Clover Park ever produced!
Go Green and White, Fight - Fight- Fight Warriors!!

retired prentissphotos.com Married 3 2016-05-07 18:45:31I have been married to my wife, Patricia, for 37 years. We have 3 children and 6 grandchildren with one in the oven. After Clover Park, I spent 5 years in the Navy Civil Engineer Corps and then went to Harvard Business School. My entire career was spent in comercial real estate development. In 1987, I formed my own Company, Prentiss Properties, which we took Public in 1996 and sold the Company in 2006 for approximately $4 Billion Dollars, so our shareholders did very well. Since then, I have spent my time with my family, as well as travelling, and working on my photography and golf game.
