After LHS
I managed to graduate from college at the ripe old age of 55 with a degree in emergency medical science, which qualifies me to be a paramedic. Very intense school—one year, five days a week, eight hours a day. Hardest thing I've ever done.

I've been a Lawrence firefighter for 29 years and now wear two hats, including paramedic. I can't imagine a more rewarding career.

Hearth & Home
I have been married to Julia Schnur-Laughlin for almost 25 years. Next month (October) is our anniversary. We chose not to have children, but we do have a wonderful yellow lab named Corey. Julia is a kindergarten teacher at Sunflower Elementary School in Lawrence, so she has many children. They just don't come home with her.

The Other Stuff
I have many hobbies: fly fishing, photography, woodworking, sculpting, silversmithing, kite flying, lapidary...the list goes on and on, much to my wife's chagrin. My greatest achievement is staying alive. Grow up? Who wants to grow up?

My Memories of LHS
Always, the people.
