Debbie worked in both the banking industry and in the California Community College educational arena for her entire working career.

Deb took a deferred retirement at the end of May 2011 so both of us could start traveling together.

For about 15 years Debbie also worked as an executive secretary with Home Savings of America (HSA) and Wells Fargo; she also briefly worked as a software analyst with HSA before they were taken over by a merger. Note: Home Savings of America (HSA) was acquired by Washington Mutual (WAMU) which was then acquired by Wells Fargo (WF).
Don has five (05) children consisting of four (04) boys and one (01) girl, and (03) three grandchildren consisting of (02) boys and one (01) girl. My children are named Guy Allen, Ryan Edward, Donald Joseph, Shawn Luis, and Rachel Betsy. All of my children have good careers. I hope to see all of my children from time to time as we travel around the country. I am very proud of my children!
Both of us want to live a long and healthy retirement lifestyle so we will be putting additional efforts into exercise (walking, hiking, biking) and healthy eating.
