About Me: I left Fort Worth in 1962 and spent 18 years on a journey through Harding Univ. [BS Biology & Psychology], Ok. State Univ. [MS in Psychology], USAF Pilot F-5 and Instructor Pilot -T-38 [1968-1973]and 5 yrs. in the oil business in Pennsylvania, We moved to Arlington in 1979. I've spent the last 30 years as a crisis managment business consultant, real estate developer and financial direcor of a non-profit ministry. The most important achievment in my life was marring Linda Johnson in 1966 and having 2 daughters; Julie in 1970 & Tracie in 1072. Linda was diagnosed with Alzhmiers in 2002 and has been home bound and dependent for the last 3 years. What a great blessing she continues to be in our lives. Julie is a MAFT married to Chad MacDonald [Scotting director with Diamonbacks]. They have two sons; Cade [9] and Cort [6]. Tracie is a level 10 national gymnastic judge,married to Brian Ely [Southwest Airlines Jet Mechanic]. They have 2 daughters; Emma [5] and Ally [2]. We live in North west Arlington and are members at North Davis Church of Christ where I've served as an Elder for the past 16 years. Don Samanie Jan, 20, 2010
