December 31, 1944 Business Owner/ Retired dividingbread.com Married 6
After High School I attended the U of WI, Madison and Madison Area Tech College for a year each.  I worked at several Beloit area businesses, Beloit Corp, Colt Industries, Dolphin Machine Works as a Tool Designer and Manufacturing Engineer.  I ended my stay in Beloit in 1976 when I joined Caterpillar Inc. in Aurora IL. I worked for Caterpillar for 33 years, living in 6 different cities.  My jobs at Cat allowed me to travel to most of the US states, South America and Europe.
 
I have 6 children and 15 grandchildren. 
 
When I retired from Caterpillar in 2010, I moved to Skiatook, OK to start a foster care farm with my daughter Leigh and her family.  We currently have 4 foster kids, 2 adopted kids, a yard full of chickens, a pond full of ducks, and a pasture for the donkeys.  Anyone who wants to come visit…we need help in the garden.
 
Two years ago, we started a food ministry for feeding hungry kids and supporting families in need.  We now have thrift stores in three neighboring towns where we sell donated clothing and household items and use the money to buy food. We are providing approximately 100 bags of groceries a week to hungry families in need and we give over 75 school children weekend food packs. (these are kids whose only regular meals are the ones they get at school)
Our current goal is to become as self-sufficient as possible using hydroponic gardening and solar energy.

June 18, 1945 Salon owner/ cosmotologist Married 2
After High School I enrolled in a Cosmotology apprenticeship program and trained and worked in Beloit for several years.  In August 1967 I married Dave Jordan and moved to Mt. View, California, where Dave was stationed in the U.S. Navy. After Dave"s discharge from the Navy in 1970, we moved to San Jose, Ca. where we have lived for the past 43 years.  We have two great kids a son 41 and a daughter 36, a Grandson 10 and Grandaughter 4 months, born exactly 10 years apart to the day. What are the odds? We thought it was really cool!  I am still inthe Salon/Cosmotology business and have owned my own Salon for about 37 or so years now. It has been a great business over the years but the best part of what I do is that I have had the privilege of helping  others to feel good about themselves with our services.

As most know I was in the Class of 1963 but received my dipolma a little later.  I served in the US Navy aboard the SSBN617 Alexander Hamilton, a nuclear submarine.  After return to Beloit and working for a few mfg. companies I attended Blackhawk Technical Collage and received certification in Refrigeration and Air Conditioning and later owned Dick's Refrigeration and Appliance Repair.
 
The last few years have been a challenge with some medical issues. Doing much better this year and look forward to visiting with classmates.
