Rich Dickson
May 30, 1951 Retired Engineer, Cat Technical Center Married 2

Latest update: 04Feb16
Married to Bev for 39 years this Oct 1st. Two children:
Andy, 35 today; 3 years Army, BS architecture SIU, MS construction mgmt Wash U, lives in Chicago working for Crawford Company
Elisa, 34;  Peoria, IL PTA specialising in women's health. Married Chris Marchand, 03Jun06. Chris is the headmaster of Alethia School, a private, classical school (pre-K-12) in Peoria.
Three grandsons: Elliot 7, Micah 5, and Izaac 2
I retired from Cat Mossville Technical Center, Bldg L Engine Development Lab 30Jun14 with 35 years of service. I miss the technical challenge but not the politics. 
Bev and I support three Peoria charities, Habitat for Humanity, and Hillsdale College. We are Constitutional Conservatives.

Constitutional Conservatism flows from Judeo-Christian Biblical principles, but is religion-neutral — atheists can be (and are welcomed as) Constitutional Conservatives — Constitutional Conservatism does not seek to set up a religious government (as some conservatives desire). But in agreement with the original framers, freedom of religion is paramount to the Constitutional Conservative. However, religious freedom is freedom to, not freedom from. The foundation of Constitutional Conservatism stems from four simple ideas, expanding from one core principle — a return to the Constitution as the supreme law of the land. Both major parties ignore the Constitution when it suits them, and this must not be.

  1. Textual interpretation of the Constitution — The Constitution is not a “living document”.
  2. Fiscal responsibility — If you spend more than you take in, you’re in trouble. All levels of government must balance budgets each year.
  3. Charity — It is not the role of government to take care of people. Each citizen has a moral responsibility to help those less fortunate.
  4. Personal responsibility — It’s time society stops allowing “victims” to shift the blame somewhere else.

Ted Duke
Qwner Aardvark Pest & Termite Control Inc Married 3
After high school I spent one year near St.Louis then returned home to Peoria.  I went to work for Thompson Food Basket where I met and  married  Lana Pauli. We raised three great kids, Jacob, Erin and Abby. Jacob is the General Manager for an ethonol plant in Bluffton, Indiana, Erin is the North American Team Leader for New World Pasta and Abby is a toy buyer for Target.Com. Erin and Abby both reside in Minneapolis.  Erin married last summer and Jacob just got engaged last month. No grandchildren yet.
Thompson Food Basket went away in the fall of 2000. I managed branches for Terminix which took us to Omaha and Des Moines. I retired and we returned home to Peoria in the spring of 2007. Three months later I started Aardvark Pest & Termite. Now I kill bugs, trade options, work on our house renovation and play a little golf.
Looking forward to the reunion. Hats off to the organizers and what a great website. Thanks for all your work.

May 30, 1951 Retired Committed Relationship 3
Hi Schoolmates... I have lived various places around the country since getting out of NIU in "73". I moved to Southern California, lived there 13 years, 5 years in Texas and North Carolina since 1991. I was in management for a grocery chain for years, but now I'm retired living with Theresa, my beautiful girlfriend of 4 years. I live about 40 minutes from Wilmington N.C., which has offered Theresa and I the pleasure of doing some "extras" work in the film industry there. I have 3 kids, 1 in L.A., 1 in New Orleans and 1 in New Jersey. Family time is not nearly as often as I'd like! I, like many of us "boomers", reflect on my life with respect to living the remaining years in the most productive, meaningful manner.  Leaving this earth with "no regrets" would satisfy that passion. The picture submitted is Theresa, myself and my sister Linda.   Steve E Send Steve a MessageSend Steve a Message

Rocky Mountain Pre Mix Married 4

  After High School I floundered around a bit . I first moved to San Diego for a while went back to Peoria then settled in Boulder Colorado in 1976 where I met my wife Karen. We just celebrated our 25th in August, my 17 year old daughter Colee had a baby boy Jaiden 2 months, my mother turned 90 in August , my wife turns 50 on Christmas day and I turn 58 0n October 9th. Imagine that! I had a son in High School that I did not know about. Surprise he called me when he was 30 and said I think you are my dad. Loren is now 40 and lives in Mt.Auburn Ill. Karen has a 29 year old Brianna who lives in San Diego. We also have a 23 year old son Justin who lives in Denver. Karen and I left Boulder in 1988 and moved to Las Vegas . We were there for 19 years. Didn't think I could take it that long but we did. We decided to move back to Beautiful Colorado 5 years ago. Karen runs and owns Tuscany Day Spa and Salon. I am still in the Ready Mix Concrete business that Ron Amundsen got me in. He is retired and lives in gorgeous Coasta Rica. Something is wrong with my plan. Many of us from Richwoods have visited Ron and of course Kevin Krieger down there.
