David 's Story

Life Go to photobucket dot com Enter davidmobrien in search images box-click search, then click "View davidmobrien's album" (tiny blue letters). After high school I worked in an electric motor shop for $1.60/hr in Dover, Delaware (for my friends on the west coast-can anybody in Orange Co. help me find Deeann Garrison?). Then I was hired by E.H. Richardson Land Surveyors for a huge raise to $2.25/hr (thats a 41% raise Mr. Layton) and found a little freedom! I bought a '66 GTO from Chip Slaughter (pastel yellow/black vinyl top/Cragers/4 speed). A beautiful year of muscle car fun ensued! Great job, great car and dating a Wesley College girl(Lynn Wartman-anyone seen her?). I was on top of the world! Then came peace, love and drugs. There was no escaping it-by the end of 1970 I flew to L.A. on a one-way ticket for more freedom and adventure. I lived in Orange, Newport Beach and Huntington Beach and then Boston, from '70-'73. Then I came back to Dover where I worked as a lot man first, then in sales for Dover Nissan from '76-'79(thanks, Jerry Passon for the Sales position-I've never forgotten it), then moved to St. Petersburg, Fl. There, I painted houses and eventually got into "fixer-upper homes" and real estate and THEN found my dream job (and the inspiration to quit drugs and non-stop partying). I drove a big, modern, state-of-the-art tour bus (seven tv's-vcr-Blaupunkt sound system) all over the U.S. and Canada for 23 yrs (freedom city!). It was a great life-4 star hotels-met lots of great people from all over the world. We did two and three week tours to the National Parks in the Canadian and American Rockies and all over the wild west-also NYC.-Boston-Toronto-Wash. D.C.-Chicago-RT.66-L.A.-S.F.-Nashville-New Orleans-Miami Beach. I went to 4 Super Bowls-2 Daytona 500's-Nascar-Nasa-worked for President Bush (senior)-The Secret Service-Gov. Schwarzenegger and the Northern and Southern Protection Detail in Calif.-movie/tv/music stars-The Rose Parade-The International Hot Air Baloon ...Expand for more
Festival in Albuquerque-lots of College Bowl games-lots of NFL football teams and MLB baseball teams. I'm off the road now and looking for a less intense career #2 (ofcourse it'll have to have an element of freedom in it). I see lots of Dover & CR people here in Florida and also when visiting Mom in Dover. Dad died of heart attack in 1981. I'm divorced-no kids-lots of friends. I hang out with Bobby Lefort, Dan Maggart, Sammy Hughes, Ed Motley (all from CR). Mike McKewen (CR) was here for 20 years then moved back to Dover. We watch sports together on TV on the weekends, eat buffalo wings at sports bars, go to Tampa Bay Bucs, Devil Rays and Lightning games (wearing our Philly jerseys,of course!), cruise in my mint condition '64 GTO (4 speed/3 deuces) to the beach, car shows, etc. I see Craig & Lynn Massey (their Mom lives near me) and Ron Slacum. Others in this area are Annette Atwell, Don Lefort, Tom Cuthcall, my brother Mark, Deedee Peacock, Don & Cathy Duffy, Judy Skweres, Jay Calhoun, Renie Martin, Nancy Cahall, Dan Ramsburg, and Kim Richardson & Janet Schraeder. I've been drug free since '83 (hey, 14 yrs was enough for me) and mostly alcohol free (occasional beer or two with the wings!). I stay as healthy as possible with exercize but still have the aches and pains and yes, like all of us, the looks of old age. Overall, life is good! It's time to re-connect with your old friends. We have our 40th and 50th reunions coming up! We all grinded it out the best we could. We had huge cultural changes to deal with-Racism, Viet Nam, Woodstock, Watergate, Disco! So give yourselves and everyone else a break! It was the Age of Aquarius! We all took different routes thru life but still have the same personalities that we knew eachother by throughout our high school days. (If not, call me for some counceling-you ol' hippie!). I have lots of contacts with Dover, CR, DAFB and Holy Cross alumni. Send me an Email! (Sorry for all the errors Mrs. Levitt and thanks for passing me-that was close!
