“Daz” and his wife Diane are currently living in Des Moines, Iowa. They have 3 grandchildren, a daughter Jennifer 36 living in Omaha, Nebraska and a son John 32 living in Huntington Beach CA.
DAZ is on his third career. After serving in the Air Force for 20 years, City Administration for 12 years, he is now working in the technology field, a network administrator for an ISP. Daz graduated from the University of Nebraska Omaha with a BGS in 1984 and a MPA in 1988. Mike, while in the AF, served in numerous locations around the world including 3 years in London England, Alaska, Montana, North Carolina and Omaha NE. While assigned to Strategic Air Command Headquarters he worked on the development and fire protection for the B-2 “Stealth Bomber”. He was city administrator in Alton IA, Bayard NE and Pleasant Hill IA. After all the moving he decided to get into a field where he would not be moving so much. " We are looking to retire in the southwest. Tired of snow and hot humid summers the south west will prove a nice change."
For pleasure Diane and Mike travel extensively, Mike caught the fly fishing bug in Western Nebraska.
Favorite memories? State baseball tournaments and of course 314 Broom and water skiing on Lake Wingra in the “Durks” boat.
