    I am writing this record in my 70th year of life so the reader will be aware how blessed our

    life has been.  The following is a chronology of highlights and important dates since

    graduation from Robert E Lee High School in 1956.

    1990 - This very successful firm that engaged in land planning and general civil engineering

          consulting practice was sold.

    1990 - Present  I have provided a comprehensive entrepreneurial investment management

    and consultant/advisor services to a limited number of select clients on real estate

    acquisition, management and asset sales matters.

      Earned life membership in The American Society of Civil Engineers, and have been a

    member, officer, and or director of numerous professional, civic, and social organizations

    since 1961.  In 1969, I was selected as "Outstanding Young Engineer for 1969 by the

    Sam Houston Chapter of the Texas Society of Professional Engineers and as state runner

    up for 1970. Selected for Who's Who in the South and Southwest 1971-1986 and for Who's

    Who in Engineering 4th Edition.  During my active career, I was a Registered Professional

    Engineer in TX and LA and a Registered Professional Surveyor in TX and LA. In 1997, I

    became a Qualified Family Mediator in TX and NC.  I do volunteer family mediation for

    the Blue Ridge Dispute Settlement Center in Boone, NC when I am there.


      My wife BJ (Bobby Jean) of 48+ years is currently working on a Master of Fine Arts

    Program in "Popular Fiction Writing" at Seton Hill University in Greenburg, PA. This

    is keeping her very busy at the computer. She has to go there twice a year for one week

    residency to meet with her mentor and professors until completion scheduled for 2008.

       She has one award winning published book entitled Bayou Shadows published under her

    pen name, BJ Foster in 2000. You can read all about it at  As you

    can tell, I am her greatest fan.

       We retired in 1990 at age 52 and traveled almost continuously for 3 or 4 years staying

    in places until we tired of them usually about 3 to 4 months. Since then, we have summered

    usually 4 or 5 months at our summer home in the cool, western NC Blue Ridge Mountains

    at the Elk River Club. We wintered skiing at Vail/Beaver Creek,

    Co for several years until we felt it was becoming too risky for us old folks. The snow

    boarders have taken over the slopes at most ski places and they are scary and dangerous to

    life and limb. We have wintered in Naples, Florida for 3 of the last 5 years and have

    wintered for a couple of years near our daughter, Sharon, who is a lawyer in Little Rock, AR

    We still maintain our Texas residence and several times a year visit my father in Lufkin who

    is in his 93rd year. We currently walk or hike 10 to 12 miles a week on the beach in Naples.

    We are doing our best to wear out, not rust out. Up to now our life has been one grand

    adventure and we have been blessed with good health, much joy, happiness and material

    blessings beyond what we could have imagined in 1956.           February 2007

    Birthday: May 6

    Hobbies: Travel, reading, genealogy


    After high school, I went to Texas A&M for 3 semesters then switched to University of

    Texas and graduated in 1960. In 1962, I decided to get my military obligation off.  I went in

    the Army for 2 years and luckily got sent to the shores of Lake Erie to defend Ohio.  While

    working in the Houston area, I had met my future wife, Pat West.  When she graduated

    from college in 1963, she flew to Ohio and we were married there and spent our first year in

    Ohio.  After returning, to Texas, I entered UT Law School while Pat supported us as an

    R.N. I graduated early in 1968.  This was excellent timing since our oldest son was born

    during my finals.  We then moved to Corpus Christi where I practiced law, specializing in

    oil and gas, corporate and real estate law.  Pat retired from nursing to be a full time mom

    and our second son was born in 1969.  Both of our sons are married and do something in

    the computer world which we don't understand, but they keep our computers running.  Pat

    got into art and became a portrait artist.  I retired in 1991 and began to work more on my

    golf game.  Since Pat also played, we took some nice golf vacations.  In 1993, we decided

    to relocate and ended up in East Texas on Lake Palestine, which is about 20 minutes out-

    side of Tyler. Our home is on about an acre of land, so I get to do a lot of yard work which

    I view as a good exercise program.  We both like to read, especially history.  We still

    like to travel and have been able to take some interesting trips.   March 2007

    5311 Pennystone Way

    Friendswood, TX 77546



    Birthday: August 1


       After graduation, I attended Lee College for 2 years and then graduated from Stephen F.

    Austin State College in Nacogdoches to finish my B.S. degree. I then entered Hermann

    Hospital School of Medical Technology in 1959.  I worked as a Medical Technologist in

    the Chemistry Dept. at the MD Anderson Hospital for a year after training and then joined

    the Memorial Hospital System in Houston in 1964.  I did Chemistry, Hematology, and

    Blood Bank for 3 years and then became the Blood Bank Supervisor at the Southeast

    branch for the remainder of the 39 years there. I retired in 2000.  Since then, I have been

    involved in assisting with the care of elderly parents.  Mother still lives in Baytown so I

    am there often.

       Mickey and I married in July 1961.  We have 2 sons, David and Russell. They were

    born Nov. 1962 and Nov. 1964.  We have one grandson named Cody. He is 14 years old.

       We like to travel and be with family and friends.  We have a cabin and an acre of land

    on Lake Livingston where we love to spend time enjoying the peace and quiet and all of

    God's little creatures.  Birds and squirrels are everywhere.  It is a great place for family,

    friends, or just ourselves.  A group of us from the Lab have formed a chapter of the "Red

    Hat Society". We have lunch and do different activities once per month.

       I have loved reading the "stories" of all of my classmates.  I guess that I am the real "odd"

    ball of the group.  I only know of 3 others that entered the medical field.  Those brave

    souls became doctors!

       You have done a great job on this Website, Jeannie! March 2007

    Shirley Evans Hopper

    Spouse: Bill Hopper   

    21835 South Shore Drive

    Chandler, TX 75758



    Hobbies: Fishing, travel, bridge, gardening


       I graduated from Lee College and worked at Exxon until I married Bill Hopper of

    Highlands in 1960. I then moved to Austin where Bill attended The University of Texas.

    I worked for the Defense Research Labs there until Bill received a degree in Chemical

    Engineering and we moved back to Baytown in 1962.  Our daughter, Suzanne was born in

    1964 and our son, Michael was born in 1968. Shortly (three months) after Michael was born,

    we moved to Tyler, Texas where we stayed for 28 years until we moved about 20 miles away

    to our present home on Lake Palestine.

       Suzy has a degree from UT Austin. However, more important to her is the fact that she

    was in the Longhorn Band for five years. So, we saw lots of football and Austin hotels.  She

    married a really great guy for Maryland. They live in Roswell, Georgia just north of Atlanta

    Suzy used her degree with an advertising company in Dallas for a year then she became a

    flight attendant with Delta Airlines (which I love as I fly for free!) James and Suzy presented

    us with our only grandchild, Scott Spenser Stickles about four years ago. I am enjoying him

    immensely.  I wish he were closer, but I still do a good bit of visiting and babysitting. Also,

    sitting in the Shreveport and Atlanta airports....Ha!

       Michael obtained his degree from the University of North Texas. He has a home in

    North Dallas (so far North that he pays taxes to both Dallas and Plano) and he is a

    Regional Manager of Corporate Affairs and Media Relations for Home Box Office.  If you

    are wondering, as we did, what he really does. He organizes premiers and related

    community receptions, advertising and promotional events. When HBO introduces a

    special production, such as 'The Band of Brothers" series, He knows lots of caters, venue

    managers and newspaper/trade magazines, television, radio, etc. folks in about a dozen


        I stay very involved in my church, Green Acres Baptist in Tyler. I worked with

    the children's choirs for many years when our children were young. I also played in the

    original hand-bell group in the church for 25 years.  I play with two bridge groups regularly

    and I sub in others, sporadically. Also, I dabble in Mah Jong and even after all of these

    years, I play canasta, occasionally with a group here at the lake.  I am an avid Texas

    Longhorn sports fan. If you come to my home when they are on television, don't take it

    personally if I neglect you until the game is over! I also love to garden, travel (love those

    cruise ships) and I catch more fish off of our pier that Bill likes to clean. But more than

    anything, I love to be near my grandson. He calls me "Grammy" and it just melts my

    heart. March 2007

    Billy and I were married March 24, 1956 and moved to Austin after I graduated. He

    graduated from The University of Texas at Austin.  We moved to San Antonio for several

    years he graduated and we had 5 children while we lived there. After we left San Antonio,

    we moved to El Paso and then back to San Antonio. We lived in San Antonio a few more

    years and then moved to Washington DC. Since he was a federal employee, we moved a

    lot.  We were transferred back to Austin and I attended SWT in San Marcus.  We both

    worked for the Internal Revenue Office until we retired in 1996. We have 6 grandchildren

    and love visiting with them.  We decided when we retired that we would move back to

    Baytown to be with our family.  We have been back since 1997 but we really miss the Hill

    Country.  We still have some land in Leander, Texas and probably will build there and

    eventually move back.   March 2007

    can say for sure--I have a wonderful family of three children and seven grandchildren with

    varied personalities, interests and occupations.  They keep me hopping.  Life is good--has

    been good--was blessed with a wonderful gene pool and a healthy family.  I stand back in

    awe at what the younger generation fearlessly tackles. I look forward to seeing everyone at

    the next luncheon in June.  I'm not walking normally yet after my back surgery, but heck,

    I'm not out to win any beauty contests. I just want to visit with everyone at a more relaxed

    pace than the big reunion.

    Don and I have been married 51 years (52 years on July 29, 2007).  We celebrated our

    50th wedding anniversary with a renewal of wedding vows and a reception which our

    daughter and daughter-in-law planned for us.  Our son, Scott, a minister performed the

    renewal of vows.  Our four grandsons, ages 9 to 20 stood up with Don and our only

    granddaughter, Kari Mae, 12 stood beside me.  It was very special.  I'm sure many of you

    remembered we got married in 1955 between my junior and senior year of high school. I,

    of course, finished school.  LOL

      In the 70's, 80's, and 90's, I was Director of Human Resources for several hospitals;

    Humana Southmore in Pasadena, Humana Baytown, Pasadena General in Pasadena and

    finally, The Deveraux Hospital in League City where I retired to go into Musical

    Evangelism for several years.

      After many years of traveling full time in gospel music/musical evangelism, with a full

    band, we've been pastoring for twelve years.

      From 1979 to 1984, Don had a recording studio and music store in Baytown called

    Music World Enterprises.

      Our daughter, Carla and her husband are very successful realtors in the Nasa area. Our

    son, Scott and daughter-in-law are the Senior Pastors at a church in Killeen.  We have

    five grandchildren and they are all involved with music. Three of the boys have a band!

    God has blessed us and we give Him all thanks for that.

      I guess along with all of you, I could probably write a book on the "lives and times" of the

    Hoxworths, right? LOL

      God bless all of you! We are looking forward to seeing as many as possible at the

    upcoming mini reunion at El Toro in October.

    25 Chatwood Road Charleston, WV 25304


    Occupation: Chemical Engineer (Retired)

    Birthday: September 21

    Hobbies: Sailing/Boating, Travel, Securities Trading, Volunteer Work


       After graduation, I majored in chemical engineering at Texas A&M, serving in the Corps of Cadets and on the Ross Volunteer Drill Team.  Graduating in May 1961 with a BSChE, I received a USAF commission on the same day.  I served as environmental engineering officer at Gunter AFB in Montgomery, AL, Glasgow AFB in MT, Davis-Monthan AFB in Tucson, AZ, and was discharge in 1964.  I met Pat in Tucson and we were married December 1964 in Tulsa, OK.

     I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 1965 with an MS in Industrial Hygiene (environmental).  In October 1995, I joined Union Carbide Chemical (UCC) in Texas City in process design.  I transferred to UCC’s Houston Engineering Center in 1997 and later to Charleston, WV in 1975.  I earned a Professional Engineer License, MSChE degree from Texas A & M, and worked part-time on an MBA in WV.

     Pat and I parented three lovely daughters.  Melissa, Jennifer, and Susannah.  All were born in Texas, of course, and all are happily married.  We have 7 beautiful grandkids, 4 boys and three girls age 12 and under.

     I designed polyethylene and PP plants and served as process design group manager, PE/PP licensing manager for four years, associate director of engineering, director of process R & D for eleven years, project director (new Canadian PE plant) and engineering director for three years.

     I served as VP of Design & Development for Molten Metal Technology Co. Boston, for 1-1/2 years. MMT became bankrupt and I was soon un-retired and reemployed as engineering director for UCC.  I retired from UCC (now Dow Chemical) in April 2001 and remained in Charleston, WV.

     We’ve been avid sailors for years, keeping our boat six hours away on the Chesapeake Bay.  Pat and I bought our latest sailboat, “Ubiquitous” in 1999 and sailed 3 months in the Maine Islands, 6 months in Miami and the Bahamas, and 5+ months to Key West and Cancun, Mexico.  Bending to convenience and comfort, we switched to “Hullabaloo,” a 2005 Monk 36 cruising trawler in 1997.  Later, in 2011-12, we cruised 9 months and 7,000 miles on the “Great Loop” around the eastern U.S. and Canada, and in 2013, cruised another 4 months in the Bahamas.

     When not boating, we enjoy our seven grandchildren (12 and under), do volunteer work at CCUM United Methodist, travel, and watch the market go up and down.

     Life is good!  We love to have visitors and REL classmates are always welcome.

    Opened private practice of surgery in Mesa, Arizona and lived there for 3 and 1/2 years.

    At this point, I felt the call from the Lord to move back to Texas and take care of my

    parents. Also, so that my children could have grandparents and my parents could enjoy the

    grandchildren. I have 4 children; three girls and a boy and 5 grandchildren.

    I have practiced surgery here in Baytown since 1972. I retired December 2001 from

    surgery but I still do some " light work" doing physicals and occupational medicine for

    various clinics around Houston. One daughter and her two boys (ages 6 and 9) live with us

    for now and they keep the house pretty active.

    My passion is serving our Lord Jesus Christ.  We attend Second Baptist Church in Houston

    (Ed Young, pastor). I am the current director of our Bible Study Class.  I have another

    year to go on that assignment.

    Scripture tells us that "all have sinned and come short of the glory of the Lord." and "that

    there is none who do good and sin not".  Even so, "we can have peace and joy through the

    the relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

    I really love music. I like to sing, but I am not sure anyone likes listening to me, except me.

    Mostly, I like old standards, you know, the songs Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, and Nat King

    Cole sang. I like listening to the Bill Gaither "Homecoming Performances" and singing the

    standard church hymns.

    Well, this is enough.  If anyone wants to know more, well, I would enjoy telling more!

After graduating from REL, I went to Methodist Hospital School of Nursing in Houston, graduating in 1959.  I worked two years at the Houston VA Hospital, married Wallace in 1961.  I have three daughters: Dr. Sally Combest-Avalos, mother of Daniel Paz and Rachel Margaret, Abbe Anne Combest in Plano in the travel business and Rebecca Beth Orton in Irving with Enterprise.  Wallace and I moved to Waco (his hometown) in 1964. I worked for Providence Health Center for about 30 years in the capacity of RN, head nurse, supervisor, and still occasionally make a few home care nursing visits for Providence Home Care.  I enjoy reading, estate sales, spending time with my grandchildren and a little traveling.  Unfortunately due to Wallace’s health, I am

not able to travel now, even for short trips.  I enjoy hearing about the reunions and classmates.
