Comments

I was in the music business for 30+ years. I worked for Warner Brothers Records for 20 years, and owned two record stores. Bowling was also a big part of my life, I was the Georgia State Amateur Champion three times, and the SE United States Amateur Champion once. I'm in the NW Georgia Bowling Association and also the Georgia State Bowling Association Halls Of Fame. Health reasons have unfortunately finished my bowling career, I spend most of my time now collecting and listening to music.

School Story

My dad worked for the US Army. I was born in Germany, we lived there for many years and I attended Heidelberg High School until halfway through the tenth grade. When we got transferred to Atlanta, I enrolled at Southwest High School which is one of the best things that ever happened to me. I played baseball for two years and when I secretly married Linda Brooks, I lost interest and was busy spending time with her. Our daughter Julie was born in September, 1966, and she has a son named Ricky who is my only grand child.

Doug and I started at Southwest at about the same time, halfway through the tenth grade. He came from Indiana and I came from Germany. We quickly became friends and discovered that we were both avid bowlers. We introduced our parents to each other and they also became great friends. They formed a team that bowled in leagues together for several years (until my dad got transferred to Virginia). One night Doug and I rode with our parents to the bowling alley and were just wandering around outside while they were bowling. We got the idea that if we moved their car, maybe they would be surprised. Well, we were right! They walked out after bowling and couldn't find the car. Their immediate reaction was that it had been stolen and they were about to call the police. When we confessed that we had rolled it to the end of the parking lot where it couldn't be seen, they almost made us walk home. Doug was a great guy, we did many things together that I'll always remember. I still miss him.
