My wife Rhonda worked for 14 years as a Secretary/Administrative Assistant/Realtor. She is currently a fulltime mommy and she loves every minute of it. I would like to clarify one thing, I am not the Chris Hinson, who got shot or busted for buying, selling,s moking crack or whatever. I have never hit the pipe and don't plan to. To all of those who thought that was me, well it wasn't. I am glad to know that everyone is doing well. Have a nice day.

I married Julie Hebert (Class of 1984) some of you may remember her because we were boy friend and girl friend since the eight and ninth grade. We both went to Lamar and now I am a Manager for the largest electrical distributor in the country (Wesco Distribution Inc.). My office is in Beaumont and we still live in the Groves. We have been married for 16 years and we have two daughters Valerie 13 and Victoria 10. I often see and talk to many people we graduated with, but after going through the names on this website I was shocked to see so many names of the people I had lost track of. I bet 90% of you do not remember me. Well I have yet to go to a reunion but you can bet I will be a part of number 20. We are getting old. Someone that remembers me send me an e-mail I would love to chat. I would send the first, but I think you all may not remember me.
P.S. Can you believe that me and Scott Sipole are brother-in-laws?
