Mary Kay (Little) class of "79" and I have been married for 10 years. We have three kids, Brooke 22, living in Cincinnati Ohio. Brooke has a three year old son named Brian Austin, yes, I know it is hard to believe I'm a grandpa. Brooke is getting married this July to Leighton Compton. Leighton has two young girls Audra and Caylee. We are looking forward to enjoying our growing family. Son Ethan is a junior at AHS and younger son Keith a 4th grader at Northwood.
In July of 2003, after 24 years with the City of Ames, I called it quits to take over as General Manager of Stevens Memorial Chapel here in Ames. There is a lot to learn and I put in a lot of hours but I love the work.
I'm looking forward to seeing everyone in July.
