Born on a farm 12 miles northwest of Plains, Kansas. Left Plains in 1965 never to live there again although I return at least every 5 years for the high school reunion.
Have lived all over the US from Honolulu to Hartford and Atlanta to Denver and spots in between. Repaired computers, then managed Field Engineers for a career. Retired in 1997 at the age of 55.
Now live in Phoenixville, PA with my wife Kathy who retired in 2007. We have a 5th wheel camper that we use for snowbirding to FL, TX, NM when it's winter in PA.
My parents are Eugene Byron Coats and Pearl Louise Salisbury Coats Dierking. Both are buried in the Plains, KS cemetary and are on the Find a Grave web site.
One sister, Patricia Ann Coats Hanrahan
One brother, Rick LeRoy Coats
Have an active family tree "Coats and Salisbury" on Ancestry.com and Geni.com.
