I moved to Eugene, Oregon 1 week after graduation from RHS.

Worked until 9/11/1965 when I was involved in a severe accident between my motorcycle and a station wagon backing out of his driveway. I T-boned the car doing 65 MPH.

I spent the next 3 years in and out of the hospital (11 months total time and 14 surgeries). Most of this time I was in a full body cast. After I was able to walk again with crutches, I attended University of Oregon School of Architecture for 1 year. I then went to Lane Community College and earned a degree in Engineering Technology.

I met my wife Virginia while working as a lot boy at a Dodge Dealership. We were married October 1969.

Upon graduation from College in July 1970, we moved to Portland, Oregon with a job at Hyster Lift Truck’s Corporate Engineering Department.

For the next 26 years we lived in the Portland area working for various Lift truck related companies. I transitioned from Engineering to Computer IT and wound up as Corp IT Manager.

In 1996 the company I was working for transferred me to Houston, Texas to be their Corp IT Manager for 5 divisions. In 2002 that company went bankrupt.

At that point I decided to try my hand as an IT consultant, and was successful at that working with several companies.

In 2007 my health had deteriorated from the years of wear and tear springing from the motorcycle accident. I have had both hips and both knees replaced. I retired with disability and am now fully retired with time to play with my toys.

My wife Virginia was an Accounting Administrator managing research grant funds in the Chemistry Department, at Rice University in Houston. She retired from Rice and was retired for a year then was talked into going back to work at Rice. She then retired (permanently) in 2017.

School Story:

Falling out of the back of Gene Allens pickup and breaking my leg. (he ran over a curb in the parking lot at RHS transporting band instruments). Don't know if he broke the big Base Drum or not!!!! I never did find one of my shoes!!!!!

Happy Birthday, Tommy! How are things in Pearland? It's been a long time since I've been through that part of the country. My granddaughter still lives in Sugarland. Anyway, I hope your and Ginger are primed to celebrate big time. Hopefully, some or all of your kids come by to celebrate with you. Go Astros.

Well, Happy Birthday to my friend Tommy Morton! Tommy, I just want to say (write) it: You Are A Blessing.
You took your God given talents and blessed a whole graduation class. I am amazed at it's development and how thoughtful and encouraging RHS 65 Coyotes are. You didn't know what a gigantic, fantastic, wonderful website you conceived. And you keep tweaking and improving it! Thank you! So celebrate and enjoy it immensely. Let me tell you that when I hear the word guru my thoughts think computer and you are THE computer guru. But now I'm rambling. KLUJICS!

Happy Birthday, Tommy! So much to be thankful for. May our Lord continue to watch over you and Virginia and may you be blessed on this day especially.. My wife's uncle Bill who had Parkinson's real bad had to be evacuated and it was hard on the man. He reached his birthday on 9/11/2017 but the whole calamity of Harvey may have been too much for him because he died on 9/13/2017. Regardless, he knew who his Redeemer was and we shall see him again. God bless you and the folks in Pearland, TX real good. KLUJICS! Psalm 145:19. Respectfully, Paul Viera, RHS 65 Classmate

This is the one and only picture that was ever taken of this bike.
My accident of 9-11-1965.

I was riding a Honda 305 Scrambler on Sep 11th 1965 in Creswell Oregon at about 6:30 PM on a 2 lane black top county road doing about 65 MPH when a fellow backs out of his driveway in front of me.

I hit him t-bone style at the rear of the front right wheel.

Spent the next 3 years in a full body cast and about 11 months in the hospital trying to survive.

Came away with both my legs but cannot bend the right knee even today.

Some of you may remember this one.

This is what was left of my Dad's 1957 Chevy 4 door BelAir Hardtop after me and 3 friends did a 115 MPH 3-1/2 barrel roll 1 car accident in 1964.

Tommy Lunsford was with me. Can't remember the other guys names.

We all walked away with some minor abrasions.

The reason I did not drive a car in my senior year.
