We lived and worked in the Denver area (Littleton) until we both retired on the same day in 2006 - me from the professional engineering society SME (Society for Mining, Metallury & Exploration) and Doug from the USGS. We moved to a small historic town in northern Colorado the year before we retired and, after retirement, spent 4 wonderful and active years traveling, completing a book on the K-T Boundary and it's significance to the sudden disappearance of the dinosaurs, and pursuing other scientific activities until Doug passed away very suddenly and unexpectedly in January 2010. Doug's research and my career at SME provided us with the opportunity to travel extensively in the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia and South America.
I live in Berthoud, Colorado where I enjoy the company of so many wonderful friends, am active in the art community (I work in stained glass and pottery), volunteer, garden, care for my numerous dogs, cats, and birds, and take advantage of Colorado's majestic mountains and glorious scenery whenever I can.

November 27, 1943 Trumansburg NY Almost retired Propane marketer Ehrhartpropane.com Married 4 Fall Creek Boynton Jr High no Kathleen Denison Overbaugh - The Rest of the Story

Since Tom wrote a good description of his take on our life together over 47 years, I will try to add to it, and not repeat anything. Live has been good to us – we married young, worked hard together as partners, raising our four children and building our business and are now looking forward to retiring together.

As Tom said, we have four grown children – Tracy, the eldest, lives here in Trumansburg with her husband, John, and their son Louis, 9 years old. She works in our business and is in line to take over my responsibilities as financial officer. Our son, John, lives in Salt Lake City with his wife, Holly, and their three sons, Ethan (16 years old, with a wonderful singing voice), Caleb (13 and a champion wrestler and tuba-player), and Gabriel (10 and a Karate expert). I don’t get to see them as much as I should, but John keeps us informed on Facebook.
Bill lives here in Trumansburg with his wife, Darlynne, and is our General Manager. They have been married just a few years and are too busy right now to think about having children, but I look to them for a granddaughter. Darlynne has a chocolate shop in the village.
Lydia is working on her PhD in anthropology at University of Texas at San Antonio, and lives there with her significant other, Chris, and their 2 year old son, Connor.

Tom mentioned that we have been able to travel, which is my favorite thing. We have youth exchange sons, daughters and grandchildren all over the world, and many friends that we have worked with in youth exchange. We have had many adventures in our travels – including a wonderful dinner with Hungarian friends in a 1000-year-old wine cellar in Eger, Hungary; a breath-taking day at Iguazu Falls on a day when the water was rushing over the viewing platforms; a wonderful boat ride around Hong Kong harbor and a walk on the Great Wall of China. We’ve ridden elephants in Thailand, and found the Royal Barges of the King in the middle of Bangkok, and have watched the sun rise on the back side of the Taj Mahal.

But the best part of traveling is coming home. We live a few miles out of Trumansburg in a house that was big enough for our family, now gives us lots of room to wander around and fill up with our stuff. I serve on some community Boards. A friend of ours once told us to always have a project, and Tom and I have taken that advice to heart. Being busy in positive ways keeps us both young.

August 13, 1943 Trumansburg NY Propane & Oil marketer EhrhartPropane.com Married 4 Fall Creek Boynton Boynton Life has been good to Kathleen (Denison) and me. We married in Aug 1963. After a stint of 13 years climbing the corporate ladder in the retail business (Century House wares) we elected to move back to Tompkins County from the Springfield, Ohio area in 1976. I spent over a year rehabbing a 150 year old farm house which we still live in.

In January1978 I went to work for Kathleen’s uncle Gerry Ehrhart, Ehrhart Propane with the plan to purchase the business. April 1984 we purchased the business, Sept 1984 we purchased Mor-Gas, and so began our interesting life in the propane business expanding thru acquisition and just plain hard work. In 2002 we talked our youngest son Bill into coming into the business and now have our oldest daughter, Tracy with us also. Our youngest daughter, Lydia is working on her PHD at the University of Texas – San Antonio and our oldest son; John works in the software business, Medi-City, in Salt Lake City. I have served my industry as President of the NYS Propane Gas Association and currently am on the National Propane Gas Association Board of Directors.

I joined Rotary International in 1984 and it too has been good to us. We both are deeply involved in the Rotary High School Youth Exchange Program on a local, national and international level. Currently I am the Chairman of our District’s Program for the second time (either I didn’t learn or they didn’t). I also serve on the Board of Directors for the North American Youth Exchange Network for the US, Canada and Mexico. It has brought to us many students who we are in contact with all over the world. It also has enabled us to make many friends (Rotarians) all over the world. As a result we have traveled to many different countries and stayed with our friends and former students, a very different experience than as a tourist. As a result, not only do we have our natural children and 5 grand sons but others who we love as much as our own and they too have provided us with grandchildren.

I have the best of two worlds, I work when I want and I am retired when I want and I still get a pay check each week. I still own that old Model A Ford I drove while in high school and have collected a few more cars since then. When traveling I am always looking for a car museum. I am still wondering what I want to do when I grow up!
Although I have atteneded all the previous reunions I am looking towards this one with  more interest than the others because we all have had a lifetime of experiences that I hope we can share with each other. Send Thomas  a MessageSend Thomas a Message
