Story
Tagline
I am a retired accountant, an author, a teacher, a Consultant, and a SCORE volunteer
Introduction
I joined the Navy after attending 1 year & 1 Quarter at University of Nebraska Kearney Nebraska (formerly known as Kearney State Teachers College).  After serving 4 years in the Navy I married Patricia L. Kelly on August 13th 1955.  I stayed at Kearney long enough to bring my subjects and grades in order and then we moved to Denver so I could complete my Accounting subjects at the University of Denver.  I graduated from the University of Denver in 1958. I worked at Price Waterhouse accounting firm while attending the University of Denver.  My first accounting position was a Jolly Rancher Candies in Wheatridge Colorado.  My accounting degree took me to several different companies throughout my 40 year accounting career.  I wrote and published an accounting book; "Cover Your Nut", Practical Accounting in Plain English for the Real World in 2006.  I wrote and published a book of memories; "Gibbon's Secrets", A Boy's Memories of the 40's in 2008.  I volunteer my accounting knowledge to an organization, (SCORE) that helps individuals that are starting a small business or are in a small business that has problems.    We are living in Lincoln to be near our three daughters and four grandchildren.  Currently I am teaching a Practical Accounting & QuickBooks Start-up course at Southeast Community College in Lincoln Nebraska.
