Yes! Attending Reunion
Residing In:
Scottsdale, AZ USA
Kimberly Johnson Landon
VP, Health Systems with SunMed. Retired as of 4.1.2022
Ashlee 40, single lives and works in Scottsdale, AZ.
Alli 38, single, graduated from ASU with a More…degree in Criminal Justice. She lives in Scottsdale and works for Wells Fargo Bank in the fraud prevention department, Internal Affairs
Alex 30, Quality Operations (Web Administrator) with ASD Healthcare (Amerisource Bergen HC), lives in Frisco (Dallas Area).
My Dad passed on January 25, 2021. He would have been 98 on May 11th. My Mom passed away on May 23, 2017. She would have been 94 on June 15, 2017

I was a 4 year student athlete 4 at Duke University (football) and graduated in 1975. After graduation I became an assistant football coach, both at Duke and at the University of Virginia. I received my Masters of Education, in Guidance and Counseling from Duke, during this period.
In 1981 I joined American Hospital Supply as a sales representative and began a career in Healthcare which has lasted 39 years - American Hospital Supply, Baxter Healthcare, Allegiance Healthcare and Cardinal Health. In reality, because of mergers, acquisitions and spin-offs, essentially the same company.
I work today with SunMed, a small medical device manufacturer owned by Dempsey Ventures, a private investment firm. Dempsey is owned by a gentleman that worked for me when I was a Regional President with Baxter in Phoenix in 1994. I have been involved with private equity owned companies since 2004.
Kim and I have moved back to Scottsdale after 7 years in the Dallas area (Frisco). Now that all 3 girls are in Arizona this is where we want to be, at least 51% of the year.
We are looking forward to a final retirement in the next several years when Dempsey sells SunMed. We plan to split time between Scottsdale and Wilmington, NC. ( closer to the DC area which we have always missed)

School Story:

High School was a great time for me. I developed some wonderful friendships and started to learn a little about what life has in store. I parlayed high school athletic and academic success into a great college experience at Duke University. The Duke environment helped me to forge myself into the successful business person and family man that I am today. It was through Duke that I met my wife. Actually my wife, Kim, is the younger sister of my 4 year college roommate and Duke Football teammate, Mark Johnson. Both Mark and Kim graduated from Oxon Hill High School in Prince Georges County in 1971 and 1972 respectively.
Success is always built upon preparation, hard work and perseverance-- WJ provided a laboratory for me to hone those skills. For that opportunity I will always be grateful.
One regret that I have always had is not having had the opportunity to spend significant time in the DC/Maryland area. I have had to work to stay connected to my WJ experience and my good high school friends.
On a very positive note I have been able to reconnect with my oldest friend, George Pratt. George and I met in the 3rd grade have been friends ever since. He was an usher in our wedding, a high school teammate and the very best of friends. Through no fault of anyone we became disconnected for many years until about 10 years ago. We have redoubled our efforts and now communicate on a regular basis, much to my extreme pleasure. George and I have much in common and i look forward to seeing much more of George, Sandra and his kids in our mutual retirement in the not to distant future. This also can be said for Jack, Doug, Paul, Billy and John. Great friends and wonderful guys.

I am officially retired as of April 1, 2022. I am entering uncharted territory but the timing certainly feels right. Kim keeps asking me, "what are you going to do"? So far 2 things - become a scratch golfer and take guitar lessons.
I look forward to seeing everyone in September at the reunion.

Happy Birthday. Hope all is good with the family. Let’s all hope that things get back to normal soon.
Walking on the beach yesterday and passed a gentleman wearing a T-Shirt with the statement, 2020 SUCKED. I asked him if he had placed a patent on it. Might be worth it if one is in the business.
All the Best.
