After graduating from W-L, I spent a year and a half at UNC-Greensboro (rooming with W-L alum Lisa Goodrich) and then transferred to George Washington University and graduated in 1971 with a BA in English.  I married Jim De Deo, who was then practicing law in Fairfax, in April of that year and I entered law school the following fall at GW.  After law school, I spent ten years at the National Labor Relations Board, litigating cases involving labor issues.  While I was at the Board, I briefed and argued cases in the federal courts of appeals and worked on briefs to the Supreme Court and, more importantly, Jim and I had two children:  Elinor, born in 1978, and Daniel, born in 1980.  In 1984, I took a position at the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) and spent the next 25 years in various positions handling a variety of labor and employment issues, with the exception of a brief stint as a shareholder in the Washington office of a Dallas law firm.  In 2009, I retired from my position as Deputy Solicitor, after almost a year as the career official responsible for the Office of the Solicitor, awaiting the appointment of a Solicitor.
 
I am lucky enough to live next door to 3 of my grandchildren (ages 10, 8, and 5) and see them every day. My two youngest grandsons live in Keswick (just north of Charlottesville), so I see them fairly often as well.  Both of my kids are far more successful than I ever was.  Elinor owns and runs a design agency (Blue House DC, https://bluehousedc.com/) and Danny is a lawyer with Baker McKenzie in DC.  I only wish Jim was here to enjoy this wonderful family with me; unfortunately, he died of a heart attack in 2006.  He was far more of an athlete than I, coaching both kids’ soccer teams, and would surely have enjoyed his grandchildren’s prowess in soccer, softball, baseball, and hockey.  I keep busy helping out with grandkids and as an administrative judge on the Personnel Appeals Board at the GAO, a part-time position that requires very little of my time.

Unfortunately, won't be able to make the reunion this year.  I'm living in rural Arkansas on 125 acres with my wife, Carol and our four dogs.  Retired as an Army Major with seven years active Air Force and 20 years Army National Guard.  Recently retired From the Little Rock Police Department with 20 years as a police officer and eight years as a civilian helicopter pilot.  Since my mother and sister, who both lived in Arlington, have now passed away, not much reason for me to visit Virginia anymore.  I'm very active with the Masons and belong to several masonic lodges.  I wish everyone well and continued success.

Married 3
I was one of the quiet nerds during my time at WL and never stayed in touch with any former classmates.  However at this point in my life, I find myself very blessed.  I completed my career as a senior staff researcher at Lockheed Martin and now teach computer science on a part time basis at a local college. I have been married to my best friend for over 40 years and have 3 wonderful daughters who in turn have good spouses that have provided us with 4 granddaughters.  Wishing everyone the best!  Enjoy life to the fullest!
