Ed is a 1951 graduate of Point Arena High School and went to Cal Poly and San Francisco State where he graduated in 1955. After two years in the Army he got his teaching credential. He taught and coached at Point Arena from 1959 to 1965.

Alice graduated from Point Arena High School in 1960 and the Monday after graduation went to work at the Bank of America in Point Arena. We started dating and married in 1961. We had two daughters in Point Arena. Ed changed teaching jobs and we moved to King City in 1965, where he taught and coached. Our third daughter was born in King City. Alice worked as a bookkeeper and was active in Junior Women’s Club and her art.

In 1992 we both retired and moved to the Parks Ranch on Miller Ridge (Stewarts Point) where we built our home. After our parents passed Alice took over the sheep business and with her many hobbies is very busy. Ed is busy keeping the roads open, collecting and reading books, and writing his “Fading Memories.”

We are looking forward to our 50th anniversary next year. We have three wonderful daughters and sons-in-law, seven grandchildren, and one great-grandson, which we enjoy. Two of our daughters followed their Dad and are teachers and the oldest is a tax assessor.
