Tom Voegeli 9610 Edgefield Rd. Roscoe, IL 61073 email@example.com 815-623-5972 Biography & Fond Memories My photo did not make it into the senior year yearbook. I did graduate along with everyone else! In 1986 I married Catherine "Kathy" Lancaster of Southlake, Texas, and we have 2 daughters (6th grade, HS Junior). We've lived in Irving, TX, Elgin, DeKalb, Hampshire, and Roscoe. Kathy became disabled in 1991 due to multiple sclerosis and Huntington's disease, and she died in November of 2011. I went to Triton College for photography, then worked in various commercial photo studios in Chicago, Dallas and Elgin until 1991, when I started my own business doing graphic design and commercial photography. I'm either producing magazines and magazine ads in my home office, or photographing products at my studio in Loves Park. For fun, I kayak, camp, travel, bicycle (24-hour MTB races, across Iowa, in MS fundraisers, etc.), and take pictures. My memories of EHS involve getting into - or out of - harmless trouble with Jim Klarkowski, and of Mr. Lange's excellent guidance in the photo program.

Married to my flight instructor now for 32 years. We have one daughter, Lauren, 27, a graphic designer and avid horsewoman, who lives in Chicago. My husband, Bob, is a captain for American Airlines. We enjoyed living in St. Louis for 20 years before moving back to the Chicago area 10 years ago. I retired in 2009 aftter a 22 year career as an aviation insurance broker, managing the St. Louis office and eventually the Chicago branch office for a large national aviation agency, and responsible for producing business in five states.

BEST MEMORY FROM EHS - I loved being in the band. I've actually played in two different community bands over the years since high school.
