Comments:

Directly after graduation I moved to Omaha, Nebraska where I met my wife to be, Vicki. I went to Bellevue college for a couple of years and then moved on to a career in sales and various other adventures. David Perry Mobile Homes, Inc. Was the last before returning to school. In 1989 I returned to college and attended Hardin Simmons University. I graduated in 1992 and began a career in teaching. I received my M.Ed. from Angelo State University in 2000 and have been a school administrator ever since. I retired in April as the superintendent of Brooks County ISD in Falfurrias, Texas. Vicki and I have been married for 48 years and live in Gorman, Texas where I was superintendent for five years and now Iโ€™m Mayor. We are involved with โ€œWalk to Emmaus โ€œ. I play guitar and lead praise music at our monthly community meetings in Eastland and Breckenridge I am also a Promise Keeper Ambassador for my area and was blessed to work on the evangelism team at their event at ATT Stadium last year. I am also active in the DeLeon Masonic Lodge. I also like to play golf as often as I can. Retirement is not boring!๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‰

School Story:

I am certain the information above is a shock to some when you consider the student I was not while at Cooper. However, we grow up and things change and we have a better focus on what is important. I am thankful for all of the experiences I had in high school and even more thankful that I survived. But I really do miss my old 1949 purple dodge pickup and drag racing at lunch time. I also miss the pool hall that used to be across the street from McMurry, Mack Eplans, the Ranch House Cafe, and all of the folks I worked with at Taco Bueno and those I had a lot of fun with on the weekends after hours. Things were a lot simpler then and safer too!

I was one of those kids that did the very minimum to get through high school. I worked and lived the life of a young adult. I had a lot of freedom the rest of you did not have which may have been good or not so good but I was a good guy I think and had a reputation of taking up for the little guy. Fighting in those days was not the horrible thing it is today. It was quite common. I remember one day during a break between classes I had a short fight with Rick Roughton. When the bell rang, we stopped and went back into class, hair messed up and grass all over us. The teacher just looked at us and shook his head. Our world is much more fragile today and unfortunately we take ourselves a little too seriously. Thankfully my sister was more involved at Cooper than I was and is, Iโ€™m sure more remembered (Deonna Perry/Galbraith).

I haven’t seen Duncan for a long time but we were friends. In high school, we ran with some of the same crowd. He was a good guy. When I had My mobile home business we reconnected because he was in the air conditioning business and he did some work for me and my dad. He was an honest good natured man. May he Rest In Peace in the arms of Jesus!
