Allen & Donna - In The BeginningAllen & Donna Now

We were born in Wenatchee, WA. I grew up in Wenatchee and graduated from Wenatchee High School in 1970. Donna grew up on the east side of wenatchee (across the river) and went through the Eastmont School System. I was drafted into the Army in 1971 and spent time in New Jersey, New Mexico, and Utah. I worked as an Airborne Frequency Surveillance Test Specialist in Albuquerque. I was discharged in 1973 and went to Wenatchee Valley College for the next two years.


While attending school, I met Donna and we were married. We had our first child, Candy, before I graduated. I recieved my AAA in Forestry Technology. I worked for the US Forest Servive for a couple of years, but went back in the Army in 1976 (I can't believe it either). This time Donna came with me and for the next 8 years she played the Army Wife. We spent time in Alabama, Kansas, and Germany. During this hitch, I worked as a Automatic Test Equipment Tech, testing and repairing anti-tank weapons. Then in Alabama as a Technical Writer. We had a son while in Kansas, we named him Tim. I picked up another College degree from John C. Calhoun State College in Huntsville, Alabama. It was a AAS in Missile and Munitions Technology. We had another daughter, Kimberley, born in Germany. I recieved my honorable (and final) discharge in 1984 after giving Uncle Sam a little over 10 years.


Back in Wenatchee, I went to work at Apple Valley Telephone Inc. and went to Wenatchee Valley College at night. I got another 100 or so credits and decided I was done with school (my GI Bill allowance ran out). I worked as a telephone technician, installing and servicing phone systems and equipment for about nine years until the company was sold to Televar Northwest Inc. I did the same work, maybe a little more computer networking. It lasted for a few years. Then Computerland Network and Telephone bought the phone part of Televar, so then I worked for Computerland. It later became LocalTel Communications. Besides the telephone side of the job, I got to do computer work too (networking, repair, voice mail, etc.). I left and begin working for Frontier Communications, formerly Verizon, formerly GTE, as a Central Office Equipment Installer. I retired in June of 2013 and began the RV fulltime lifestyle.


Donna's oldest Son, Scott Peterson and his wife Melissa, their children Brock and Mia, are living in Blythe, CA. Our oldest daughter Candy is living in Vancouver, WA. Our son Tim is living in Snohomish, WA wih his wife Shannon and their sons Roman & Ryker. Our youngest daughter, Kim, and her husband Chris, are living in Union Gap, WA. So Washington is our 'go to' place every summer to visit. My hobbies are RVing, travel, working on my computers & web pages, exploring the Net, genealogy, and maintaining the web site (www.cfbof.com) for the Christian Fellowship Birds of a Feather group.. Donna loves sewing, baking, crocheting, and making new friends.


December of 2017, we decided to purchase a place in Yuma, AZ and get out of the RV for a few months of the year. It is a nice piece of property with a manufactured home on it. Perfect for the winter months. We still plan to travel around the country in the summer months. I think a smaller travel trailer is in our future.


Everybody is in good health and life is good!
