  Welcome to the Shawnee Mission West Class of 1966 Website 

 

                                                 

Ron Williams, "What do you spend your time doing these days?"

Since my wife Judy & I retired here to Florida 4 years ago we've settled into the “Florida lifestyle” quite nicely.  We're not near the beach, we're in the middle of the state but that works out fine for us, we're actually pretty close to a lot of interesting parts of Florida and enjoy discovering new parts of the state and surrounding area.  I hate wearing socks & long pants. Love puttering around the house, watching the golfers go by in my back yard and hanging out at my pool.  After working for almost 50 years in the brokerage business I found out I had no trouble pulling the plug and coming to a screeching stop.  

We do a lot of traveling and I enjoy doing the planning.  I'm not that interested in international travel, we've found a lot of favorites here in the US.  We spend every Christmas in our favorite city New Orleans because nothing says Christmas like a big bowl of crawfish gumbo!  Other favorites that we have returned to are Bar Harbor Maine, Monterey., Key West, San Francisco & New York.  Currently I'm working planning a trip next year to Arizona & the Grand Canyon.  When I was working I earned a lot of points and miles that we are using now and I've learned to get creative with points & miles and do that as a hobby.  Figuring out the best value for points & which credit card to use for charges is interesting to me and has really paid of for our trips.

Those of you who knew me in high school knew I was way into music. I continued playing on the side professionally for a number of years. I played in the Chiefs' and Kings' band, at Worlds of Fun, many many shows that came through town and with a lot of danceband and jazz groups.  After we moved to Richmond my job kept me traveling a lot and it finally got to be too much so I hung up myhorns, but continue to love listening to jazz and fool around with keyboards a little.  

We are both pretty lucky to be relatively healthy and have built a happy live here in Florida and just enjoy enjoying life.  

Pictures are of us "at the beach", tiki bar, our backyard and going on an aerial tour of Bar Harbor.
