What's happening in my life now:

Retired owner and operator of CRISCON Body Works, Center for Therapeutic Massage, after 18 years of working in this profession I have been convinced to retire and make the move and make my home in Idaho. After 76 years of residing in or near South Pasadena I have finally made the move to greener pastures literally here in Idaho, we purchased a home on 3.2 acres in Middleton, Idaho, where I intend to build my own retirement home on part of the acreage. My son, his wife and any future grand children will reside in the existing house. Middleton is very much how I remember S.P. (18K residents) while I was growing up, small town, everyone friendly and helpful, great schools and very much entire family oriented.

Pastimes & Hobbies:

Getting ready to try a strict diet of fishing and maybe hunting in Idaho.

Favorite Music, Songs, Bands

Music of the 50's, 60's, country and western along with any easy listening music

What I'd like my classmates to know about me for our next class reunion.

I have finally made the big move to Idaho, and am finally getting to enjoy four distinct seasons, it snowed over night on our first day here, I've been in snow but never actually seen it snow, now I have. Where we live now, I can sit at the dining room table and watch cows in 3 of our neighbors pastures, watch hawks and bald eagles flying around. Wild pheasants, turkey's, geese and other animals run through our pastures. This is all so new to me after being a "city boy" all my life.

I now have my chance yo continue being active working with kids at the local high schools and of course staying healthy.

Additional Comments:

I was a Police Officer in South Pasadena for 14 years, I was a project manager in engineering and test on the B-2 Bomber with Northrop/Grumman aircraft for 18 years before going back to school to become a sports therapist which I practiced in my own office for 18 years.
