Now Phoenix AZ Author Married 5 4 2 Finished college,and then joined the Marine Corps (aviation side). From there I was in corporations as sales management and sales training for most of my career.

Mostly sold or managed invasive medical devices in orthopedics and cardiology. In 2003 started my own business at, a palliative care company for seniors. Sold it in 2005 and started The People Advisor, LLC a training and recruitment organization that morphed into my present company, Rapid Sales Success. Rapid Sales Success is also a book I wrote on selling to the executive suite.

Cathy and I have three children (one is a foster child), and I had two by a previous marriage to Janice Boyer (61). We have been married for 40 years on February 14th.

All of our kiddos are grown. Four have degrees, two of which are masters. Three have supplied grandchildren - one in Phoenix, one in Denver, and two in Hutchinson, Ks.

My sister, Dr.Joan Caulfield, still lives in Kansas City with her husband Dr. Alan Warne, and is still quite active in the community in education. She was a Professor at Rockhurst College when she retired to her own business.

FLASH...New Book available on

Currently I am writing a new blog with a working title of "Learning How To Learn". It has been a passion to share what was learned in corporate classrooms, with the educational world and homeschool moms and dads. I am hoping it will have the desired effect.

I also have a book(s) website at:

This one oulines the four books I have written to date.
Best = Coach Robinson, George Ewing, North door, school spirit, the YMCA, Tepee Town, football,track, Miss Varney, Miss Atwood. All in all everything.

Worst = None.
Life sometimes got in the way, but I was for the most part able to shut it out -- until later, and then I learned to confront and cope. Still healthy, still smiling, still having fun. Hope you are too.

It will be good to catch up and hear what's going on. Send Joe a MessageSend Joe a Message

Now Kansas City MO Sales Single After graduating from Shawnee Mission East I attended the University of Illinois with my best friend David Ellis. I attended summer school at Kansas City Junior College to knock out 8 hours. Sophomore year attended MU in Columbia first semester and second semester attended the University of Kansas City and then back to the University of Illinois in Champaign Urbana where I should have stayed from the start.

I joined the work force and became employed by one of the largest manufacturers of Industrial specialty chemicals. While working with them I lived in Kansas City, Madison, WI and Chicago. After 8 years I decided to start a duplicate company and 36 years later I'm still doing it.

It has afforded me the opportunity to deal with countries like Canada, Russia, Guatemala, Argentina, Netherlands, Greece, Italy, South Korea, Sudan, United Arab Emirates, India and Israel. You would think that with all that I would have found a meaningful relationship.
BEST: Fraternities, Sororities & The Bowery Ball and thanks again Harvey Saferstein for all your help. If it wasn't for Harvey & Brad Goldberg (SW62) we never would have pulled it off our senior year. It was amazing the large amount of money that was taken in from the Bowery ball and a portion of the proceeds donated to a worthy charity, our senior year and previous years by a bunch of high school kids who were members of Delta Alpha Gamma.

WORST: The SWAT that Billy Eaglestein (SW58) gave me at my initiation. There are still days I can feel it. The day my parents told me they were moving to Kansas, my sophomore year, and I had to move with them if I wanted to keep getting an allowance and have a roof over my head. The sacrifices we kids use to make for our parents to keep them happy. Do you think they really appreciated them?

Then Newport WA Loafing, Kinda, Sorta... Practicing at it anyway Married 3 2 3 too many Married Jane Smith,Class 1962 producing only daughter Patricia Jane, then decided to give marriage another try with two boys, Stephan and Mark for the effort. Gave marriage one more try and still didn't work so gave up. Then got blind sided 10 years later and ended up married for the final time and am glad my bride chose me!

Have spent the last 40 years in various aspects of the transportation industry: airlines, surface, transit and currently in the charter service.

Moved to the Seattle area in 1991 from Independence Mo. Really got tired of all of the traffice in the Puget Sound area and moved into the rural area north of Spokane, only thing my bride and I have to worry about are the deer, moose, turkey and a passing bear every now and then. We have currently been working on our home, we call the "The Barn", which keeps us dry and warm or cool as needed.

Retired on Aug 8 of 2008 that way I would not have to try and remember that date 10 years from now.

Still have good health, my marbles are still intact.

No body told me I would lose my weekends when I retired.. After a time I lost track of time, day of the month and the month. After experiencing this for the second time and having to figure it out, I came to the conclusion I was working too hard at retirement. So I found a part-time job, now I can say "I have a 2 day work-week and a 5 day weekend"!!! Life is good...
Can't really recall much of either, "too much water under the bridge" so to speak. Besides if either would have stayed with me, that means it really must have been good or bad to leave an impression. I guess if there would be a best it was meeting Jane Smith who later became my wife. Who by the way, past away the Sunday after Thanksgiving last year....
