“Things have not changed much over the years. I taught high school (Normal Community) for four years after graduation from Illinois State. In 1972 I left teaching to become tennis director at Evergreen Rac-quet Club & tennis coach at Illinois State. In 1968 my oldest daughter (Jana) was born and in 1970 my youngest daughter (Jennifer) was born. I left the coaching field in 1986 and stayed at the racquet club. 1994 brought along a divorce. 2000 was a wonderful year, I met Gina. We bought a house in Normal, IL, in 2001. 2003 has been some what turned upside down. I’ve moved my mother from Zion to live by (Gina & I) us. This took place Labor Day weekend.”
