Information last updated:

Barry is retired from his job at ORNL and is working as a subcontractor with a multi-nation project in France called Iter. It involves 7 countries building a fusion reactor in southern France. In his spare time, he enjoys woodworking and has done a beautiful job of cabinetry in several rooms of our house. Wendy is a homemaker who keeps busy with volunteer work at the local rescue mission and at church. She also serves as the “Geek Grandma” to her friends who struggle with computers. Since Michael works for IBM and our son-in-law is computer savvy, she always has lots of backup!

Our kids, Michael (37) who lives in DC and Julie (33) who lives in VA are both married with children. We have Charlie (5), Henry (3), Alex (2 ˝) Elise (18 mo) and Norah (3 months) We stay busy just running back and forth between Knoxville and DC and until they moved back to VA, to NJ where Julie and her family lived for two years. We absolutely love being grandparents and try not to go more than 6-8 weeks in between visits.

We have a lot of fun when we are all together as you can see in this picture. We are Mimi and Papa (often spoken as Bapa) to the grandkids. We adore them all!

Michael works for IBM and does some programming, some installing and training of the software. Jeremy is contracted to NBC Universal right now and is at CNBC in Englewood Cliffs, NJ. He and Julie will be moving back to Richmond VA this month. We are so thankful to have them closer to TN and closer to Michael and his family.
