Went into the U.S. Air Force in January 72 received an Associate in

Met and married Karen Elder (Foothill class of 73) in October 1973. I
can not believe it has been 44 years! I am still nuts about her. We

Kathy is here in Michigan and Bryan James (surprise!)born after 16
years of marriage in 1990. He is now married to Kylie and they have
twin girls born in August 2016.

me dad or not. He has been calling me Mr. Marler.

Whatever she wants to do! Family!, we like to travel and see the world!

I have had the privilage of teaching someone that they can have a
personal relationship with God. Matthew 11:28, Romans 10:9, 13.He that
believeth on the Son is not condemned but he that believerth not is
condemned already, because he hath not believed on the name of the only
begotten Son of God (John 3)
We have lived in: Korea, Utah, Germany, Colorado, California, Arkansas,
Connecticut and Michigan. We are now in Traverse City, Michigan.
Stuff is one of my favorite words. Most everyone calls me Wayne,
officially still Bryan. I have not changed much over the years. On some
things I am very serious, ie the things about God, giving my word, I
still hate to be wrong about anything. Then there are all the other
things. I still love to make people laugh. My son has my sense of
humor! I spent a lot of time in the military and developed the quick
come back, which sometimes gets me into trouble. Some preachers don't
know how to take a joke! I am older, but still just me. OH, I am also
a lot bigger than I was in 71, by about 70 lbs!(make that 80lbs!) I
would like to hear from you if you are interested enough to read this
dribble, drop me a note!
