President/CEO wwwspecialtyclaims.com Married
I've lived on the east coast for the last thirty-years. My office is a ten minute train ride from NYC. I've worked in the insurance claims buisness since college graduation and fourteen years ago started my own buisness as a third party administrator. In July this year I sold the company to a private equity group and over the next two years I expect to transition out of the buisness and finally retire. I still have family in the Denver area and where my wife and I are considering a second home, while keepng a home in the New York area. Send William a MessageSend William a Message

We moved to Whidbey Island in Washington, on November 1st, 2012, a beautiful place. I don't like the word retire. I am always busy. I would still like to work at something part-time. I have a large, really nice garden and need to learn how to take care of all of these things that I don't know about! Weren't we going to downsize??? We are planning to go to Colorado at the end of March 2014 for my 70th birthday party. I can't believe that I am that old!

JOYCE Peterson (CLOER)
September 19, 1944 Registered Nurse Married 4
it has absolutely been a lifetime of events.  I married Joe Vinnola and dropped out of school at the end of my junior year.  It was very stupid, but love conquers all.  I regret the missing school, not the marriage.  To find your soul-mate is the greatest blessing. We moved to Arkansas in 1970, started a business and he died at 44 of cancer. 
I went to college again, and became a nurse.  It has been my therapy and love.  I have received much more that I have given.  Healthcare is my passion and I encourage everyone to get involved.  Our generation will be affected the most. 
I have remarried and I'm lucky to have all my children a few miles away.  I changed jobs from a "for profit hospital" to a "faith based hospital" this Spring.  Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend.  I wish you all good health.

July 02, 1944 Retired Attorney/Non-Profit Executive Director Married 3
After 35 years wonderful years of providing legal services to our sailors and Marines, I spent five years as the Executive Director of a large human services non-profit agency, where I learned more about hunger, homelessness, and domestic violence in those years than I had in all of my prior years.  My wife, Kathy, and I have been married almost 45 years and have three grown sons, one in Houston and two in Boulder, CO. We left Virginia in 2008 and are now in Texas luxuriating with our grandkids and always planning when to get to Boulder, CO, to see our other grandkids.  Ah, retired life is a hoot, because, among other things, I get to indulge my passion for Bible study and to renew my love of teaching adult Bible study classes.

July 23, 1944 Retired Married 2
After high school, and after a few self inflicted wounds, I began to grow up. I attended the University of Colorado Denver part time and worked at various jobs. Ultimately I was drafted in June of 1966. I proposed to Joann Stephenson whom I’d met working in the mail room of Western Federal Savings. We were married and I went off to war the following week. I was discharged shortly after basic training as a result of my bad eyesight which, unsurprisingly, was not picked up during my induction physical.
 
Joann earned her B.A. in education from the University of Colorado and easily found a teaching job which allowed me to continue my education full time. I graduated with a B.S. in business with an emphasis in finance and was given a full fellowship to graduate school where I earned an MBA, also with an emphasis in finance. During graduate school, I was also blessed with a son, Jedidiah the IX, since I’m the 8th.
 
I began my career as Assistant Treasurer with King Resources, a relatively prominent or perhaps notorious, oil and gas firm in Denver. This lasted just 2 years as it declared bankruptcy and the president, John M. King went to jail. I learned a lot about what not to do in this job. I joined our lead bank – United Bank of Denver in the Commercial Banking Division. I stayed there 22 years, ultimately managing the division as executive vice president until the bank was acquired by Norwest Bank. During this time I was again blessed with another son, Jonathan.
 
With the Norwest acquisition, I became the chief credit officer for all their banks in Colorado outside of the Denver metro area. After two years I was approached by the Coors family to join them as they split all their non-beer businesses away from the brewery to make it more of a pure stock market play. I accepted their offer and became the Chief Financial Officer of ACX Technologies, which became a separately traded NYSE Fortune 500 company, headquartered in Golden and with revenues of several billion dollars. I was surprised and impressed by how many companies Coors had developed over the last century in an attempt to diversify. 
I was with them a wonderful nine years as we bought, sold, and closed the portfolio of companies ultimately ending with two out of more than 25. We took the ceramics business private and merged the remaining packaging business with a similar sized company headquartered in Atlanta. For me Y2K came true as the company ceased to exist and I retired for the first time, but not the last.
 
I was fortunate in my business career to have traveled the world. I’ve been all over Europe, if fact to England 13 times in 1997 where ACX did the 12th largest acquisition on the London Stock Exchange. I traveled to Australia many times, as well as Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, Indonesia (including Bali and Papua New Guinea). I’ve logged nearly a million miles on United Airlines alone.
 
After ACX, I was asked to take over for a good friend who was dying of cancer, as President of The Bank of Cherry Creek, a billion dollar bank specializing in the upscale Denver personal market. I accepted and stayed a full year, but found that the owner – Don Sturm and his wife Susan really wanted a chief operating officer who would take orders, rather than a CEO, and so we parted company. My employment contract included a two year non-compete clause which precluded me from taking a position at another bank for that period. It turned out to be a blessing because my wife, Joann was diagnosed with breast cancer and I was able to be home with her during her surgeries and radiation treatments. Praise the Lord; it has been 9 years with no further problems. I also took the opportunity to attend Denver Seminary as a non-degree student – a goal since I accepted Christ during the very difficult economic times in Colorado in the late 1980’s. While at school I assisted the Chief Financial Officer of the seminary in securing financing to move the school to a new campus and was asked to join the board where I currently serve as Chair – a true honor and privilege.
 
At the end of my two year non-compete I joined Vectra Bank of Colorado as Executive Vice President in charge of the 22 banks outside the Denver Metro area. Vectra is owned by Zions Bank in Utah and is the product of many separate acquisitions. Zions brought in new management to rationalize these acquisitions – essentially to get them to all work and play well together. I retired 3 years ago after an enjoyable 5 years of working with great bankers in smaller Colorado communities.
 
Today I keep busy serving on the boards of Denver Seminary, Mother’s of Preschoolers ( a national organization working through churches to make better moms and thus a better world), Development Associates International ( a group headquartered in Colorado Springs that teaches Christian leaders in 3rd world countries to be better leaders). My wife and I also enjoy spending time with our four grandsons, sailing chartered yachts, and traveling.
