I got married for the first time in 1997 to a women I met in New Zealand
over 20 years prior ... long story!! And I retired in 2010 from Airgas
in the Bay Area where I worked for 30 years, moving through a variety of
different jobs in the compressed gas (cryogenic engineering) industry.
Once retired Lindsay and I moved up to our house in Virginia City,
(70 miles south of Yellow Stone Park) Montana, where I enjoy fly-fishing
(and fly tying), hiking and hunting. And when I get time, making Suiseki.
Enjoy being actively part of a close knit community; I'm a volunteer
firefighter there. Over our summer there's a lot of socializing and fun
In the US winter we go down to The Kapiti Coast, New Zealand
(30 mins north of Wellington the capital) where we have a house on the beach
(with great salt water kayak fishing...is there a theme here?)!! In 2015 we
finally finished an extensive renovation of the house, so only just starting
to enjoy it without a ton of sawdust. I have a step-daughter there, Sacha.
She lives in Auckland and is a film and television editor; married to a writer,
producer, and film director ... both married to the film industry so no
grandkids!! We love to travel and enjoy having friends and family visiting
on their travels. And like coming back to the Bay Area often, for extended
visits here to see family and friends.

Glenda (Ostler) Hawkins -
Live east of Salem, Oregon with husband Chuck (who I married right after
high school). Blessed with 7 fantastic children (5 daughters, 2 sons) and
15 grandchildren (6 girls, 9 boys, including twins). Everyone lives with 4
hours of each other and we enjoy getting together as often as we can. We
have 1 1/3 acres where the grandchildren can play and we can all make
memories. We are retired from money paying employment, but will enjoy the
greatest "payment" of love of family forever. Family history and Chuch
volunteer service keeps us busy and happy. Good health is a blessing, we count
the added pounds and gray hair up to life's experiences.
