Class of 1967
Hi Everyone, Here's my life story so
After graduation in 1967, I enlisted in the
US Coast Guard and was stationed in Florida for a year. My remaining three years in
the Coast Guard were spent in San Francisco. Other duty stations were considered temporary
duty assignments from there, and they were some very interesting ones involving jungles,
bugs, guns and such.
After I was discharged, I bummed around the Bay
Area for about a year before I heard of an opening with the Sheriff's Department in
Winnemucca, Nevada. I eventually became a Deputy Sheriff. I was there for about four years
and then moved on to the Elko, NV Police Department for another ten years. Due to some
lingering injuries that made police work increasingly painful, I landed a job with
a gold mine in central Nevada where I was their Security Manager for approx. 8 years.
The mine closed down due to low gold prices (and no more gold!). I was laid-off for two
years and was only
able to get part-time jobs during that period.
Eventually, on a lark, I took the entry test for
the US Postal Service and after three years, I am now the Postmaster in Gabbs, Nevada.
Gabbs is in central Nevada about 60 miles southeast from Fallon, NV.
During my stint as a Deputy Sheriff, I wrote
a speeding ticket to Ula Munro who later became my wife. We have been married for 23 years
and have no children, although we have been host parents to exchange students from Norway,
Germany, Switzerland, Hong Kong, and Brazil. This year we will have two girls from Norway
and Germany living in our home in Eureka,NV.
My wife, Ula (pronounced: yoo-la) is the Court
Clerk for the Eureka Justice Court and lives full-time in Eureka. I live during my
work-week in Gabbs and travel home on my days off. I hope to be able to transfer to Eureka
in the next year or two as Postmaster.
During the fall of 1998, Ula and I traveled
to Europe to visit some of our "kids." We went to Holland, Belgium, Germany,
Switzerland and Austria. We visited several cities in the former East German
Republic. Europe is so beautiful! I encourage everyone to do it at least once! We
stayed with our "kid's" families, so our expense was less than $400 including
airfare! If anyone is interested in hosting an exchange student, call
1-800-44-SHARE. Tell them I referred you!
College came through correspondence courses and
after several years I got my degree (yea, me!)
If anyone is interested, I can be contacted at 775-285-2638 (weekday evenings) or
write to me at P.O. Box 22, Gabbs, NV 89409-0022.
