Yes! Attending Reunion
Attending Class of 1983 30th Class Reunion (10/04/13)



After 1983 I went to CMSU for 3 years where I roomed with Richard Gibson (SC 1983), David Ray (SC 1984) and Stan Montgomery (SC 1984). Married Kendel Ament (SC 1982) in July of 1985. Kendel had just finished her teaching degree at CMSU and we moved to Rolla where I finished my BS in Mechanical Engineering. In 1988 we moved to Cincinnati where I worked for GE Aircraft Engines. While at GE, I got my MS in Industrial Engineering at Univ. of Cincinnati. In 1990 we had our first child Kami. In 1994 we move back to Sedalia where I worked for Alcan Cable as an engineer and manager for about 5 years. We had our second (AND LAST) child in 1994 - Zachary.

We built our dream house in Hunter's Ridge and lived in it for about 18 months then moved away to Florence Alabama to work for Superior Essex, a competitor of Alcan's. I became Plant Manager of this plant and worked there about 5 years before moving to Houston TX to work for Sercel - a French owned company that supplies equipment to the oil exploration industry. I was general manager over the manufacturing operation of two facilities in Houston. We lived in Houston for about 2 years and hated the traffic and heat. I had the opportunity to move back home (and we bought the house we built back) and took a job with Hayes Lemmerz (now Maxion Wheels) here in Sedalia as the Focus Factory Manager for approximately 5 years. In 2009 I moved jobs just down the street to the Gardner Denver plant. I have been at Gardner Denver (now merged with Ingersoll Rand) since then in various management positions and currently serve as the North American lead for Quality, Environmental, Health and Safety for 15 manufacturing sites.

Kendel retired as a teacher from the Sedalia School District in 2023 after 24 years of teaching in the Sedalia school district. Kendel and I are now empty nesters living in Hunters Ridge subdivision in Sedalia.

I funneled my love of music and electronics / audiophile into my mid-life crisis and decided to become a wedding DJ for fun late in life. I have a side business (Sound By Wolf) where I do mobile DJ (mostly weddings) for fun as my stress relief job. For the past 15+ years, at Christmas I decorate our house with thousands of lights and have the lights synchronized to music broadcasting over a short range radio transmitter. As I’ve gotten older, it is more of a pain to put up the lights and program the lights to the songs (approximately 10 hours of programming for a 3 minute song) but I’ve created a monster with our light show and I’ve had many in the community tell me that it is one of their family traditions to stop by and see Wolf Christmas Lights each year.

Unfortunately it seems like I only see several of my classmates at our reunions so I do look forward to our next reunion to see each of you.

School Story:

HRA Rules - Those of you that were in HRA know what I'm talking about. We would all be locked away if we did those things today!

Fond memories of Mrs. Rodger's yearbook class - being able to cut class to "take pictures". A side benefit of developing all of the yearbook photos in my darkroom was that I could mess with all of the photos of the people that I didn't like :)

Great memories of choir with Mr. Sinclair - it wasn't the same after he left.
