After graduation, I attended Daytona Beach Junior College and received an A.A. Degree in 1964. Then I transferred to the University of Florida and received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration in 1967.
I was being drafted into service for VietNam, so I joined the Air Force, earned the rank of Captain, and served until 1971. While assigned to Warner Robins Air Force Base, GA, I met Gloria Watson and we married in 1969. We have two children - Melanie is 36 yrs old, married and living in Charleston, SC; and Jason is 33 yrs old, married, living in the Atlanta, GA area, and has our one Grandson, Watson - 2 yrs old, with a baby girl due in November of this year. So we are looking forward to having two grandkids!
In 1972, we moved to Macon, GA, and I joined Professional Management, a Health-care Consulting Company. I am now independent from that company and own Medical Business Consultants, Inc.
Gloria and I enjoy vacations at St. Simons Island, GA; and in Waynesville, SC. And we both enjoy babysitting our grandson.
My hobbies include listening to my Two-Channel Stereo System, playing golf, and working out.
Gloria was a hair stylist and retired in 2009. She now devotes her time as a professional oil-painter. I don't plan on retiring just yet from my business, although I have cut back on the number of hours I work!
