|John Rowe - Class of 1960|
|After graduation, I worked for the Chesapeake & Ohio
Railway at Russell, KY
until 1968 when I was promoted to management & moved to the Baltimore,
Maryland headquarters. I relocated numerous times during the next thirty-two
years, primarily working in sales & marketing. During the most recent ten
years in Jacksonville, FL, I wrote briefs (submissions) & argued arbitration
cases before the National Railroad Adjustment Board & Public Law Boards. I
represented CSXT management in disputes with labor unions.
I married Brenda Kelly of Jacksonville, FL in 1989 & have one daughter (from
an earlier marriage), Angela, who is married, lives in Leesburg, VA & has two
I recently was able to retire early (age 57) & am very active in church
ministry. I lead a small group of couples in Bible study at my home & plan
to start a biblical counseling ministry at my church later this year. I find
this very worthwhile & rewarding work.
I feel very fortunate to have been raised & educated in Ironton & have many
fond memories of my childhood & my classmates.
