I graduated from Texas Christian University (TCU) in 1967 with a degree in business management. Began my work life as a Claims Adjuster with Ins. Co. of No. America. After 6 years I became a Legal Assistant with Fowler, White, Burnett in Miami and obtained an AS degree in Paralegal Studies.

Nine years later I attended UMiami Law School as a night student and became an attorney. I practiced with two small firms and then became house counsel for Union American Ins. Co. in Miami. I then became an associate with the Law Office of Steven Shenkman in Miami until I retired in 2006. I came back to the firm in 2007 as Inventory Attorney, after the death of Steven Shenkman, and closed out the practice. I then handled some subrogation cases up until March of this year.

Becky and I have 3 children: Kim 37, Bryan 34 and David, Jr. 26. We moved to Merritt Island in 2010. We just watched the shuttle Discovery fly by on its way to the Smithsonian this morning from our front porch. Becky's mother now lives with us. Becky enjoys painting with watercolors and I am active in several antique car clubs. I look forward to seeing many of you in May at the reunion.
