6. I called Medford home for 71 years.

I lived in other places for school and service in the Navy but Medford was always home and always would be. After the unexpected loss of my wife of forty-one years, life began again with an old friend living in La Conner, Washington. Last year I retired, remarried and moved to an incredible community on the Swinomish Reservation with its own marina. I'll always be an Oregonian but I find myself in a biking, birding and boating paradise. It's the land of bald eagles, trumpeter swans, snow geese, great blue herons and vast fields of tulips and daffodils. Washington is very blue and joining the resistance here makes it feel like home.
