Note*We are not sure of Albert Hugo Mehner's birth place! For certain hisparents were from Burkhardtsdorf, (just south of Chemnitz, Saxony,Germany). Albert Hugo Mehner was born October 3, 1877 in Saxony, Germany(According to his eldest son Karl Trevor Mehner, from a letter dated Feb.1969) However, according to his youngest son Robert Mehner, Albert Hugo Mehnerwas born in Stuttgart, Saxony, Germany in 1877. (The Klahiam of theEllensburg H.S., June 1910 where he served on the faculty says that hewas born in Dresden, Germany!--that was in the general area ofChemnitz/Burkhardtsdorf-- the Mehner ancestral home in Saxony). Hisparents were Karl Ernest and Therisa Otto Mehner. At the age of 4 he came with his brothers and parents to Mount Vernon,Knox County, Ohio in about 1880-81. The family came west in 1890. Theylanded in Seattle the year after the great fire. Because of Karl Ernst Mehner's failing health, the family decided to buya ranch in Kitsap County in 1891. They bought 15 acres at Fairview nearTracyton, across the narrows from Bremerton, WA. on the waterfront onPort Washington. Albert was 14 years old when the family arrived at theranch. They lived on a gladiola farm called 'Gladshore' Or 'Gladi Acres'. He delayed attending high school because of the need to help on thefamily farm. He must have resided in Tacoma (or did he commute from Bremerton?) from1896-1900 when he graduated from Tacoma High School as one of the classspeakers at his graduation in 1900 (he was 23!) With few roads and nobridges, he must have ridden one of the famous 'mosquito fleet' commuterboats between Bremerton and Tacoma. It must have been during theseTacoma days when he met his future wife Eva Mae Damon. They were married in Tacoma June 18, 1904 and honeymooned in FridayHarbor in the San Juan Islands. In the spring of 1901, the family sold the 15 acres and moved to thenearby fledgling city of Bremerton. That was also the year his olderbrother Paul married Isabell Hicks at Bremerton and became the city'sfirst clerk. (Paul was later Mayor from 1912-1914) He graduated from the University of Washington (AB) in 1904. In 1903, 04he acted as the Assistant to the famous Professor of Zoology TrevorKincaid of the University of Washington. Albert developed one of thelargest collections of seaweed in the world. Interestingly, he named hisfirst son Karl Trevor after his mentor in 1905. He was an instructor at Juneau, Alaska High School in 1904-5 where hisfirst son was born. He was instructor of Sciences at the Ellensburg,Washington High School in 1905-9 (at least) where his second son, Warren,and his third son, Abert Hartson, were born. John and Nancy (Mehner) Ruhlman have a photo of Albert in April, 1911 (hewas 39 years old). The address on the photo is 219 North Bassett,Madison, Wisconsin. The photographer was Curtiss, Madison, Wisconsin.We believe he graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a MS inScience. Albert Hugo Mehner taught Biology (an ichthyologist- 'a branch of Zoologythat deals with the study fishes and sea plants') and headed up theentire Science Department at the Washington State Normal School (laterCentral Washington University) in Ellensburg where he taught until 1916. In 1916 he developed Yellow Jaundice ('yellow pigmentation of the skin,tissues, and body fluids caused by the deposition of bile pigments') andthe doctors insisted that he give up teaching and take up outdooractivities. After a one year stay in Grants Pass, Josephine County,Oregon, the family moved back to Bremerton. They remained there and were living at 1308 Pleasant Ave. in Bremerton,June 3, 1918 when their fourth son Robert David was born. They raisedgladiolas at 'Gladishore Acres' on the Port Washington Narrows just southEvergreen Park. They are still listed at that address in the BremertonDirectory of 1920-21. We assume Albert and Eva owned the 'Mehner Apartments' that are alsolisted in the 1920-21 City Directory at 413 Washington Ave. (Althoughanother Mehner family branch could have owned them.) In 1971 the City ofBremerton built a parking garage there! Albert and Eva were members of the First Presbyterian Church of Bremertonand organized the first Boy Scout Troop in Kitsap County, WA. Theireldest son Karl Trevor Mehner said in a letter in Feb. 1969 that therewas a stained glass window in the Bremerton Baptist Church (about 5th andWarren Streets) with the Mehner name on it. (we have been unable to provethis - JJR) Albert remained in Bremerton until 1928 when he moved to Seattle wherehis wife Eva was one of the first female real estate brokers on CapitalHill. He was a professor at UW. He was bedridden in the late 1930's. Hedied in Seattle in 1939. We believe he was cremated. It is also interesting to note that they named their 'Warren Paul Mehner'after his mother Eva Mae Damon's family, the Warren's of Berwick, Maine! -Information from RobertDavid Mehner, Sr. [Coy Family Tree. FTW] Obituary, Bremerton Daily News - 03, April 1939 ALBERT HUGO MEHNER Albert came to the United States of America at the age of five andreside at 309 Pleasant Ave., Bremerton, Washington. He was cremated -Home Undertaking Mortuary, Seattle, Washington, and remains werescattered on Puget Sound. Albert Hugo Mehner was born in Stuttgart, the capital ofBaben-Wuttemberg, Germany in 1877 and came to the U.S.A. in 1880, At theage of 5 (or 3?) He lived with his parents and brothers in Ohio for ashort time before coming to the Puget Sound country in 1891. They farmedfor a time at Fairview (near Tracyton, across the Narrows from Bremerton,Washington). Albert’s father was a tailor in the old country andestablished 'Mehner and Son Naval Tailors and Outfitters' in Bremertonabout 1900. The Son was Albert’s brother Paul. Due to farm work, Albert was late going to Tacoma High School, 1900but eventually graduated from the University of Washington, AB.,1904 andthen took Graduate work at the University of Wisconsin. He taughtscience at Juneau’s Alaska High School, 1904-5 and went on expedition forthe New York Museum of Natural History in the wilds of Alaska. He later taught Science in Ellensburg High School and later became theassistant to the famous Biology Professor, Trevor Kincaid at CentralWashington Teachers College at Ellensburg, WA. and then headed up theentire Science Department at the Central Washington Teachers Collegeuntil 1916. At that time he had one of largest seaweed collections inthe world! Interestingly, he named his first son after the Professor(Karl Trevor Mehner). Then he developed yellow jaundice and the doctors insisted that hegive up teaching, and take up outdoor activities. So in 1916 they movedto Grants Pass, Oregon for a year, and then to Bremerton where RobertDavid 'Bob' was born June 03, 1918, the address was on Pleasant Avenueabout 1 block up from the Port Washington Narrows, on the east side ofthe street, a small one story structure. By 1919 they moved to a 24 acre ranch on Phinney Bay 4 miles north ofBremerton,this was ‘Gladishore’ where they cultivated gladiolus bulbs andcut flowers to sell in their store in the Dietz Building on Pacific near4th in Bremerton. This was called - Gladishore Floral Co. About 1928, they moved 4 miles south of Bremerton to the Old GorstHomestead, and lived in the big two story house on Gorst Creek. In 1929 they bought the Strand Apartments at 221 Belmont North, (nowis 221 Belmont East) Seattle, the phone number was Capital 6158. Theythen moved across the street to the corner house, 232 Belmont N. atThomas St. about 1931. They then moved to 420 18th N. (now E.) about 1932. Albert died in Seattle, the 2nd of April, 1939. The information above was contributed by Robert David ‘Bob’ Mehner, Sr.,their fourth son. ALBERT MEHNER FUNERAL TODAY Funeral services for Albert H. Mehner, Sr., 61 years old, a retireduniversity and normal school professor and a Seattle pioneer were set fortoday at the Home Under-taking Company, at 8th and Hubell Place near PikeStreet. Mr. Mehner died Sunday. Mr. Mehner had suffered from heart trouble brought on five years agowhen the motor of a boat in which he and a son, Robert David, were cruising, failed off OrcasIsland. Mr. Mehner rowed through high waves and darkness for five hours before they reached shelter. The retired professor was born in Germany. At an early age he movedwith his parents to Ohio. The family came to Seattle in 1889. Mr.Mehner attended the old Denny School, and later the University ofWashington, graduating in 1904. While a senior at the University he wasassistant to Prof. Trevor Kincaid in the Zoology Department. After leaving the University Mr. Mehner taught science a year at aJuneau, Alaska high school: then taught science five years at EllensburgNormal School: was a member of the Physics Department at the Universityof Wisconsin a year and a half and then returned for a five-year stay atthe normal school. He later moved to Bremerton to rest and study,returning to Seattle about ten years ago. He taught here for a time atthe Y.M.C.A. until retiring.

He was the 7th child of Karl Gottleib Mehner and ChristaneKaroline Mehner, her birth name was Hahnel (Haehnel). in Burkhardtsdorf.' (Haehnel is a large and well-documented family in the Erzgebirge--JJR) 'Christian Gottleib Mehner got married to Kristiane Whilhelmine Arnoldon July 8, 1838 in 'The Church' (St. Michael's Evangelical Church-(Lutheran) Burkhardtsdorf, Saxony, Germany.' 'He died Dec. 8, 1876, at 2:30 in the morning and his funeral was Dec.ll, 1876 in Burkhardtsdorf.'--Martin Schreiter Interestingly, his son, Karl Ernst Mehner, left for America four yearslater in 1880 with his family at age 35; perhaps he had waited until hisfather died to make the move; perhaps the long Franco-Prussian wars madethem want to leave. We should comment here, that according to Robert David Mehner, (NancyMehner Ruhlman's father), the parents of Christian Gottlieb Mehner were'Ehregott and Johanna Mehner', but Martin Schreiter's letter documentsthat they were 'Karl and Christane'. (Because of the documentation, wethink Martin Schreiter is right--JJR).

Note*We first knew about Herman J. Mehner because Paul Ernest Mehner (b 1910,d. 1983) sent us a family tree that lists Herman in 1973 We later learned a clue from what his brother Paul E. Mehner said in a1935 Application For Presidential Postmaster that 'from 1891 to 1901because of his father's health (Paul) bought a small farm in Tracyton(near Bremerton, WA) and worked this with his brothers' (notice theplural brothers--that must have included Albert and Herman) We notice that he is Not included in the will written by his parents KarlErnst Mehner and Therisa Otto just before they left for their trip toGermany in 1910. We know that Herman was alive in 1910 in (about age 35?) when his motherand father took a trip to Saxony, Germany (his mother passed away at age61, June 14, 1910 in Riesa, Saxony, Germany while visiting her brother,there) and Herman J. is mentioned as one of the three surviving sons inher newspaper obituary (Bremerton Sun?). His other brothers were CarlErnest Mehner and Albert Hugo Mehner. The big breakthrough came when Paul Dewar of Bremerton told us in Oct.,2000 that he found Herman listed in the Death Records for WashingtonState: 'died at age 73 in Pierce Co., WA on Sept 16, 1945.' When we received his death certificate from the State Department ofHealth, everything fit together!: Herman spent his last 40 years in thesate mental hospital (Western State Hospital, Steilacoom, WA). He diedSeptember 16, 1945 at the hospital He is listed as: Male, White, Single,age 73. (this would make his date of birth in 1873.) His birthplace islisted as Germany (Burkhardsdorf, Saxony, we would assume where hisbrother Karl Ernst was born.) His occupation, like his brother was'tailoring'. His city of residence was Bremerton. His medical record is fascinating: 'immediate cause of death, cerebral hemorrhage- - one month due to Paralysis Angitans -- ten years due to Dementia Praecox -- 40 years' So, it appears that he suffered severe mental illness as early as 1906. It appears that there was a mistake in the listing of his father, 'PaulMehner' is listed, but Paul would have been his brother! His realfather's birth name was Karl Ernst Mehner seemed to give his name inseveral different ways! -- (see 'More' notes about Karl Ernst Mehner) --the funeral home at the time of his death listed him as 'Ernest PaulMehner!' It is sad that in the 20th century mental illness was such a socialstigma. At our Mehner family reunion in Aug. 2000 no one had ever heardof Herman, the brother of 'The Professor' (Albert Hugo and 'The Mayor'(Paul Ernest). With the help of several in our family, we have traceddown the story of Herman Mehner who was largely alone in the WesternState Hospital in Steilacoom for 40 years! Welcome to our family tree,Herman! -- John and Nancy (Mehner) Ruhlman, November 2000.

Note*We understand (still to be researched) that 'Mehner' in German means'tailor' Johann Gottlieb Mehner was 'a farmer in another village' (other thanBurkhardtsdorf, Saxony, Germany.) His son Karl Gottlieb Mehner came toBurkhardtsdorf and married Christiane Karoline Haenel Nov 11, 1804 inBurkhardtsdorf. -- From the church records (AtBurkhardtsdorf?), translated by Martin Schreiter, son of theBurgermeister of Burkhardtsdorf, Feb 27, 1999 We love what Dr. Ingo Mehner of Ennepetal-Milspe wrote us January 13,1999: 'All the Mehners were very busy in making descendants, especially informer times!'

Note*Karl came with his family to Ohio from Saxony, Germany in 1880. They then moved to Kitsap County, Washington in 1891 and lived nearTracyton and Bremerton, Washington. Karl and his son Paul Mehner established 'Mehner and Son' Naval Outfitters in Bremerton, Washington about 1900. I (John Jay Ruhlman) believe Paul later became Mayor of Bremerton (about 1919?). According to his birth certificate, Karl Ernst Mehner was born August 16,1845 in Burkhardtsdorf, Germany. He was the 'son of a married couple,Christian Gottlieb Mehner who owned a house in Burkhardtsdorf'. According to a letter dated Dec 22, 1998, from Martin Schreiter, the sonof the Burgermeister of Burkhardtsdorf, 'Karl married Therisa Amelia Ottoin 1871 in St. Johannes Church, Chemnitz'. We assume that this was anEvangelical (Lutheran) Church. However, Karl's eldest grandson KarlTrevor Mehner says in a letter dated February 1969, 'grandfather KarlErnst Mehner was a Baptist, and, as you no doubt know, our family werePresbyterians (in Bremerton, WA). He came at age 35 with his wife and sons (Paul was about 8 Herman wasabout 5? and Albert was about 3) to Mount Vernon, Ohio from aroundChemnitz, Saxony, Germany in 1880. We wonder what happened to the thirdbrother Herman! He seemed to be in Tracyton (near Bremerton) sometimebetween 1891 and 1901; Herman was alive when his mother died in 1910 on areturn visit to Germany. According to his grandson Karl Trevor Mehner,Karl Ernst Mehner was a 'tailor in the old country'. The family then moved to Kitsap County, WA in 1891. They lived inTracyton and Bremerton (see 'More about Paul E. Mehner '.) His son Paulsaid in a 1935 Presidential Postmaster Application that 'from 1891 until1901, on account of father's health, Paul bought a small farm at Fairview (near Tracyton across the narrows from Bremerton) and worked this withhis brothers' This implies that Karl Ernst was failing in health (age46!) and that the long lost brother Herman must have helped our two knownbrothers (Paul and Albert) on the farm at Tracyton somewhere between 1891and 1901. We know of Herman's existence because of a genealogical chartsent to me by Paul Mehner in the spring of 1970.-JJR Herman must havedied somewhere between 1910 and April 4, 1939 when his brother AlbertHugo Mehner's obituary in the Bremerton Sun did not include him. Because of his old country experience in tailoring, Karl and his son PaulMehner established 'Mehner and Son' (see photo from 1906) Naval Outfitters in Bremerton in 1901. Son Paul was later Clerk and then Mayor of Bremerton. He signed theletter as a clerk from the City Council of Bremerton that invited theNavy Department to build a Naval Base in Bremerton! Karl was with his wife Therisa Amelia Otto on a visit to her family whenshe died June 14, 1910 in Riesa, Saxony, German (Just north of Chemnitz)while she was visiting her brother. Karl Ernst died Aug 21, 1915 according to the records of the LewisFuneral Chapel, 5303 Kitsap Way, Bremerton, Washington 98312-2299, phone1-360-377-3836. Interestingly, his name was given as Ernest Paul Mehner! We really believe this was the same person because he is listed as 70years and 5 months old (corresponds with his birth certificate).According to his funeral record, he was cremated. He was living on Ohio Street, Bremerton, WA. There was a funeral service with Minister Deckerof Bremerton, officiating on Aug. 22, 1915. Of course, is occupation waslisted as a 'tailor'. His death certificate listed his name differently again (Ernest CarlMehner!) According to this document, he was born Aug. 16, 1845 and diedat age 70 years, 5 months on Aug. 21, 1915. His cause of death waslisted as Cardiac Asthma. He was cremated in Seattle. Interestingly, he is listed as 'married', although his first wife TherisaAmelia Otto had died on a visit to Germany in 1910. Here, five yearslater the Informant on the death certificate was E. C. Mehner ofBremerton. We believe this is his second wife, Anna, (whom he probablyhad married in Germany in 1910). She was Theresa's younger sister AnnaOtto (born Nov. 26, 1857 in Saxony, Germany, died January 4, 1929 inForks, WA.) - - According to Anna's death certificate.

Note*We understand from another Mehner family study that the earlier spellingof the name was Mehnert. From John and Nancy (Mehner) Ruhlman's trip to Saxony in 1998, we learnedthat most of the modern German Mehners trace their ancestry to the silverminers of the Erz mountains (Erzgebirge) of Saxony. In 1168 there was a great silver discovery in Freiberg. The news drewpeople from Zwickau (50 miles to the southwest) and other distantmargrave lands. The Berggeschrei or 'call of the mountains' was followedby many families from Franconia (250 miles to the west in the Rhine rivervalley). By 1470 there was a larger silver deposit discovered in Schneeberg. By1500 there were about 8,000 people living in Schneeberg. The new churchdedicated to the mining patron, St. Wolfgang was completed in 1540. In1478 there were 167 silver quarries being worked around the city! The Wettin lands of the dynasties of Albrecht and Ernst were consideredthe wealthiest in the empire around 1500. In Annaberg, the greatAnnenkirche was built in 1499 and dedicated to the veneration of St.Anna, the patron saint of mining. Dr. Ingo Mehner said that the famous statue of the silver miner inBrand-Erbisdorf was that of Karl Heinrich Mehner (1885-1933) the last andbeloved silver miner there. He also said that the statue looks amazinglylike the photo of our Albert Hugo Mehner that we mailed him! ---from aletter dated Jan 13, 1999. By the close of the 16th Century, the silver ran out and the area began along, slow decline! Between the 17th and 19th centuries, the land wasnot suitable for farming and there was little income for the largepopulation of the Erzgebirge. One trade that led to prosperity was theproduction of wood products and toys in Olbernhau and Seiffen, wherethere is the well known toy museum exhibiting all manner of nutcrackers.Another means of earning a living was the production of stockings as isseen in the 'Strumpfdorfern' or 'stocking -producing' villages aroundThalheim... .--Saxony and It's History by Klaus Kratzsch,Leipzig, 1990 (Interestingly enough, the main industry in Burkhardsdorf was stockingproducing! Michael Stubbe (a Nebel family historian) told us in a letterof July 6, 1999 that Carl Gottlieb Mehner's daugher's husband,(CarlFriedrich Nebel) was a 'strumphfwirkermeister' translated literally'master stockingmaker'! The famous quality collector toy makers of Erzgebirge 'Steinbach' and'Albrecht' currently make toys in this area. Martin Schreiter, the son of the Burgermeister of Burkhardsdorf wrote usFeb 27, 1999 with a translation from the local church records: 'KarlGottlieb Mehner was born in another village. He came to Burkhardtsdorfand married Christiane Karoline Haenel Nov 11, 1804 in Burkhardtsdorf.' Michael Stubbe (above) also tells us that Carl Gottlieb Mehner'soccupations were 'Auszugshaulsers und Maurers' translated 'To move out ofhouses and Bricklayer'. We don't yet know where or when Karl Gottlieb Mehner died.

'I am Karl Trevor Mehner, born 09 July, 1905, in Juneau, Alaska. I thinkmy parents were married in Tacoma, Washington in 1904. They honeymoonedin Friday Harbor on San Juan Island, Washington. 'My father came to the United States of America in 1880 from Saxony,Germany, when he was five years old. He lived with his parents andbrothers in Ohio for a short time before coming to the Puget Soundcountry. They farmed awhile at Fairview near Tracyton, across the Narrowsfrom Bremerton. My paternal grandfather was a tailor in the old country(Germany) and established 'Mehner and Son Naval Tailors and Outfitters'in Bremerton about 1900. The Son was my father's brother Paul. 'Due to farm work, my father was late going to High School, buteventually graduated from the University of Washington and then tookgraduate work. He taught science in Juneau, Alaska at the Juneau Highschool, and went on an expedition for the New York Museum of NaturalHistory in the wilds of Alaska. 'He later taught Science at the Ellensburg (Washington) High School andthen headed up the entire Science Department at the Central WashingtonTeacher's College until 1916, when he developed yellow jaundice and thedoctors insisted that he give up teaching, and take up outdooractivities. So in 1916 we moved to Grants Pass, Oregon for a year, andthen to Bremerton where brother Robert was born.

Note*Paul E. Mehner was the Mayor of Bremerton, Washington (January 3, 1912 to January 6, 1914). We have a photo provided by his son Paul Ernst Mehner, of the Mayor laying brick for the first paved street in Bremerton. (World War I began in 1914). The photo is in the Mayor's scrapbook. Paul was born June 22, 1872 in Saxony (probably Burkhardtsdorf, just south of Chemnitz), Germany. He came with his parents and his two brothers (Albert and Herman) to Mount Vernon, Ohio. He attended high school from 1883-1887 at the Mount Vernon, Knox Co.,Ohio High School. He graduated in June, 1887. He worked in Mount Vernon, OH from 1887-1889 'I worked for my Father learning the tailoring trade'--from his November, 1935 Application for Presidential Postmaster, Bremerton, WA. In 1890 and 1891, he worked at the Puget Sound Dye Works in Seattle 'pressing and tailoring work one and two supervised. $60.00 per month board and room'--(1935 Application above) From 1891 to 1901 he moved to Tracyton, WA (near Bremerton) 'on account of father's health bought small farm and worked this with brothers' (opcit). This is fascinating to us because it implies that not only his brother Albert, but also his 'long lost' brother Herman was working with him in Tracyton sometime during this time. We still wonder what happened to his brother Herman Mehner! From 1901 until at least 1935, he 'started my present business of Merchant Tailoring Have employed as many as ten people. At the present three and four working in the shop depending on amount of work. In 1934 net from business: $2259.90, Rentals gross: $4486.60' (op cit). He became the Bremerton City Clerk from incorporation 1n 1900 to 1910--salary nothing to $20.00 per month. Paul Ernst Mehner was the Mayor of Bremerton, WA (Jan 3, 1912-Jan 6,1914--no salary). We have a photo provided by his son Paul Ernst Mehnerof the Mayor laying the brick for the first paved street in Bremerton. (World War I began in 1914) (That photo is in his scrapbook) He was appointed Postmaster of Bremerton March 2, 1915 by President Wilson 'there were about eight employees at that time. Salary was in the neighborhood of $300 per month' (op cit). Sometime between 1915 and1918, he was dropped from that position because as stated in his 1935 Application (op cit): 'Navy Department thought it best not to have a German born in office'. He was Chairman of the Board of Directors of the First Federal Savings and Loan Association; he was elected Washington State Senator in 1932.--from a Register Report by Warren Dewar, July 18, 2000 His obituary adds that he was a Bremerton Port Commissioner and a former Director of the Bremerton Chamber of Commerce. In the 1920-21 Bremerton City Directory, Paul and Isabell Mehner is a 'tailor at 409 Washington Ave. His home was at 1224 Highland Ave.' We know that he lived in a 'French Country Farm Home on Highland Ave.' There is the Mehner Building (as of March, 1999) at 253 and 257 4thStreet, Bremerton. (Currently, 257 is the B.A. Gelschmann Co. Insurance since 1930. The Kitsap County Public Credit Union is in 253.) On page 105 Paul is mentioned in the Kitsap County History of 1977.There, it lists the following lodges where he was a member: Rebecca Lodge, Grand Army of the Republic and the Woodcraft Lodge. (appropriate research will give more details of his family and life!--JJR) He was married to Isabelle Agusta Stevenson Hicks and they had fivechildren. He died in Bremerton, WA, 1940.1

Note*No family, Bud is 2nd born to Bob and Ruth (Coy) Mehner. Bod has been married four times. 'I thank God that He brought me home safe from Vietnam !!' Robert David Mehner Jr. writes: (see his father's details about Bob and Nancy's younger years) 'In the summer of 1945 when I was 3 years old, I was staying with my Grandma (Hazel Coy) who lived across the street from the Queen City Yacht Club in Seattle--Grandpa was the Commodore of the yacht club. From my grandparent's house we could watch the Mountlake Bridge on the Ship Canal open and close. One day, my Aunt Grace walked my sister Nancy and I to the Mountlake playground. From there we could see the University (of Washington) Bridge open and close. I reasoned in my 3-year old mind that I could walk completely around Portage Bay! The next morning I set out with my little red wagon and did just that...past the playground, over Mountlake Bridge, past the U of W and over the University Bridge and back to the house. I wondered what the police were doing at grandma's place (I didn't know they were looking for me! Bob Jr. trusted Christ as his Savior at Camp Gilead near Carnation, WA when he was 9 years old. The Pastor of the old Tabernacle Baptist Church of Seattle, Forrest Johnson led me to the Lord. Childhood friends were the following neighbor kids when we lived at 6912 South 115th, Seattle: Donald Parks, Terry Kennedy, Mickey Musgrove, Carl Hugo and Henry Ellingsen. I attended the Emerson Elementary, Sharples Jr. High and Franklin High School. My high school friend was Fred Singleton--the two of us were always in trouble! I graduated in 1961. I made appointments and gave free samples for a Fuller Brush salesman while in High School. Another sales job was demonstrating fire extinguishers door to door. Can you imagine a teenager carrying a can of kerosene, matches and a cake pan up to someone's porch, making sure the person is home, setting fire to the kerosene in the cake pan and knocking on the door? I sold nearly every resident. After high school I attended Edison Technical school (the old Broadway HS, Seattle) where I took sheet metal layout and fabrication. After getting my certification, I went to work at Renton Boeing on Marginal Way. In April 1964 I enlisted in the US Army-served 6 years in USA, Germany and Vietnam. In 1966 while stationed in Germany I sent a one-way plane ticket to my HS sweetheart to come and marry me. I married Linda Wise on Jan 16, 1967 in Niederwerrn, a small town in Northern Bavaria. We honeymooned in Paris. Linda was in Germany 2 months before we married and I had set up an apartment for her in the town near our base. The landlady was explaining how to light the water heater for the heiss vasser (hot water)--but it sounded like Hice or Ice water...I thought the German ways were not going to be my ways. I drove 60 ton tanks and 155mm self propelled howitzers in Germany. Home on furlough, we set up housekeeping in Alexandria, VA across the Potomac from Washington DC. I was stationed at Ft. Belvoir where I attended US Army's school of engineering for drafting. From there, we moved from Virginia to California in our '63 Chevy II station wagon that we had bought in Washington DC. I was stationed at the Presidio of San Francisco at the south end of the Golden Gate Bridge. We took an apartment about 1/2 block from 'Hippie Central'--the corner of Haight and Ashbury in 1968. Later that year we had a duplex next door to the SF Zoo rent free (government owned) that overlooked the ocean. I was sent to Vietnam in 1969. I enjoyed a week of R and R with my wife in Hawaii in the fall of '69. After the service, we settled in Corona CA where I worked at the Alcoa Aluminum casing plant for 7 years. I took business courses at Riverside City College and also studied Police Science.' More notes below about Bud's later life. 'God is not only listening, but He wants to grant the desires of your heart. For some time now, I had been praying for a riding partner; a female who likes motorcycling and loves God. Wow! What a combination THAT would be!! Other interests of mine include model trains and railroading in general, along with relics of the past, and exploring ghost towns. Well, folks, God answers prayer when we least expect it, and in ways I don't understand. After the March 20th (1999) C.M.A (Christian Motorcyclists Association) breakfast, an attractive woman approached me about riding 2nd seat on my Goldwing. Minimum riding gear required a helmet that she did not have. The ride was starting, so I said 'Maybe next time' and left. A month later, at the April 17th (1999) CMA breakfast, the same woman was there with complete riding gear and was ready to ride. She asked if she could ride with me, so I said 'sure.' The ride was north on Chuckanut Drive and stayed along the water all the way to Blaine. We stopped in Bellingham, and again at the Lummi Texaco. We had talked about a lot of things on the way, and found that we shared many interests. In some ways, my bike is like an altar, as I frequently talk with the Lord and sing praises to Him while riding. Not many miles into the ride, my soul began to sing....the weather was great, the ride even better, plus I had a pretty woman with me. In my joy, I began to sing 'Then sings my soul,,', and I looked in the mirror, only to find her watching me' OOPS! I quickly apologized for bursting into song but she said she liked it vert much, and to do it often. The destination was Blaine for lunch at Contos. We still had four and a half hours before she had to be back, so I asked her if she wanted to go to Silver Lake. She said she was just here for the ride, and I was doing the driving. We rode the twisties of South Pas and on to Silver Lake. We spent some time at the lake just talking and I couldn't believe how much we had in common. We continued the ride into Maple Falls and south on Mosquito Lake road into Acme, then south on Hwy 9 into Sedro Woolley, and finally back to her truck. We talked for another half hour. She told me she also had been praying to meet a Christian man who loved serving the Lord, singing hymns, and motorcycle riding. But then she said she was NOT looking for romance at this time--just a Christian man to ride motorcycles with until she could get her own bike. However, God had other plans for both of us!! On Tuesday, April 20, (1999) MSR (Morning Star Riders) rider nights began. Cary saw her truck at the Alger Texaco when he came for the ride. Cary's immediate reaction was 'BOB'S COMING!!' How did you know that, Cary? He had put one and one together and came up with two, and I had not even figured it out yet. The last thing on my mind was a relationship, yet I felt I was falling in love with her. The time we had spent talking on the weekend (yes, I saw her on Sunday too) had led me to believe that she is the complete answer to ALL my prayers, and more! In addition to that, the lady had a very long list of requirements for a future mate. She was certain no man could meet all of them, so she was not really looking! That hit 18 out of 21!!!?' ....
