Remember Lee Mills?

Who Was Your Most Unforgettable Teacher?

Mrs. Gregory. To me she seemed to be the most understanding yet strict teacher I remember.

Who Were Your Best Friends at Priory?

Sue Thurin, Dennis Wilson, Gary Stiles, Peter Mueller, Dudley Allen, Dave Elrod, Charles Carroll. I have good memories of many more.

Who from Priory are you in touch with now?

I have just this year exchanged E-mails with Keith Slater, Sue Thurin and Allison Bruneman.

Who would you like to trace?

Dennis Wilson, Gary Stiles. It would nice to be able to contact more of them.

What's the wildest thing you ever did at Priory?

Besides smoking cigarettes down at the lower fields amphitheatre, I plead the 5th Amendment of the United States Constitution.

Who was the craziest person you knew at Priory?

No one in particular comes to mind. I think most everyone had their nutty streak.

Where do you live and what do you do now?

I live in Vero Beach, Florida, a small town on the east coast of Florida, about an hour drive south of Cape Canaveral. I work for, and have since 1976, FlightSafety International. We are one of the premier ab initio and recurrent aircraft pilot flight training companies in the world. The company has 40+ training centers in the US and overseas. I have the position of Quality Assurance Supervisor for the Federal Aviation Administration Approved Repair Station Maintenance Department. We have 97 small single and multi engine aircraft we use for flight training. I, along with the rest of the Maintenance Department, help provide a safe aircraft for the future "Fly Boys".

Tell us about your significant others

My wife of, next month, 15 years Raelyn is my life partner. We have four, yes 4, children. I never in all my wildest imagination, sitting at the Green Table, thought this would happen. Rainey, the oldest daughter, will be 14 next month. Carly my youngest daughter was 10 last month and we have twin boys, Benjamin and Brian, 6 this past May. They are good kids.

What do you think of the Priory website?

I really enjoy visiting and seeing the faces of people I have thought about over the years. The website has prompted me to find my Yearbooks and look them over. I noticed that you do not have the 1970-1971 Yearbook. I have one and if there may be anything you need from it I would be happy to help. I must thank and congratulate you, Stephen, for your time spent and the good job you are doing.
