Tom Kendrick Bio

From Tom Kendrick, February 15, 2012:

(At Mira Costa) I didn't spend much time at all with anyone. I I spent most of me time working full-time as a pin setter at Redondo Beach Bowling Alley. I played sax in the marching band, so I didn't spend too much time socializing at football games. 

Carleen Weeding was a drum majorette so she is about the only person I remember.  I remember she and I went to school together all the way from kindergarten through our senior year in high school.

Upon graduation, I joined the marine corps and was in long enough to retire in 1977.

In April 1961, I married Grace Moe who graduated from MCHS in 1959.

On retirement, I moved to Cortez, Colorado and became a deputy sheriff. Two years later, a new sheriff was elected and fired all the deputies and brought his own people on board. 

I spent the next 20 years as a long haul truck driver. That job broke up my family because of so much time away from home. 

I remarried and my new wife wanted to learn to drive, so we became a team for the next 10 years.

We retired after that and we are now living the quiet life in Apple Valley.
