Married Mike Mohler (BD '65) in 1967. Retired twice - once from teaching first grade and once from working for a seminar organization. Active in church and community - it's good to be able to give back, isn't it? Mike has retired after 40 years at Reilly Industries and we are now officially "snow birds" - at least until the grandkids get too busy for Grandpa and Grandma. We have found an amazing place in Florida and are loving the winters with pickleball, bocce ball, golf, being outdoors, bridge, spending time with my mother and life in general. We have one son, David, in Indy with 3 yr. old Lilli, and a daughter, Cara, in KY with 5 yr. old Bj and 4 yr. old Braden. Our grandchildren thoroughly rule our world and imagine we will become frequent flyers! I hope we will always follow these words of wisdom: "A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove ~ but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child."

I found the Ben Davis High School Class of 1965 Year Book a couple of years ago after reading an email you had sent to the "Class of '65". I was amazed at what I found. Our Senior pictures along with current pictures, updates from classmates, where they are, what they are doing and much more. I have shown the yearbook to co-workers, family and friends and no one else has this online experience. As many have done, I too want to thank you for what you have created.
From time to time I peek in on the bulletin board to see the "topic of the day" or the "topic of the week". When I first found the BB you were reminiscing about life during the early 1960s . That really brought back a lot of great memories. Ah, but that was a different time and we have moved on.
Now, my information:
After high school I continued my education at Purdue University in West Lafayette, earning a Bachelor of Science Degree in Civil Engineering.
In July 1972 I married Kathryn Gibb (Ben Davis Class of 1968) and we moved to the eastside of Indianapolis where we have remained.
In January 1977, our lives changed as our daughter Karry Anne was born. In July 1980 our lives changed again and our son Kevin Michael was born. Both of our "kids" are now college graduates and are going forward with their lives.
After graduation from Purdue, I began my career designing transportation projects, highways and bridges. In 1983, I became a partner of our firm, United Consulting Engineers & Architects.
In 2001 I assumed the responsibilities of President. I continue that role today leading 80 staff members in our office on the eastside of Indianapolis.

Since high school I have lived in Lansing, Memphis, all 4 sides of Indpls and am currently now in Largo, Florida.
My first wife left me after 26 yrs and I have been with my second wife for 6 yrs. Between us we have 6 kids, 7 grandkids.
I found out quickly I wasted my time majoring in drafting inasmuch as I hated being indoors. The last 35-40 yrs. I have worked in building construction of one kind or another. I enjoy service work and meeting all kinds of people. The past 10 yrs. I have been a plumber and found it to be enjoyable.
As far as hobbies, I have always had acquariums going, mostly salt water tanks since they are the easiest to keep and maintain. I also have collected and sold several stamp collections and still enjoy reading sci-fi.

Duncan, Beverly (Jean) Douglas (That's her in color) (2004)
I got married in June following my graduation from Ben Davis--just three weeks after graduation.
A couple of years later my husband and I started a graphic arts and printing business. We sold this business in 1970 and went into the Christian ministry full time.
Our ministry endeavors have taken us to several foreign lands which include the Middle East, India, Haiti, Philippines and Mexico. My husband is the Chairman and President of an International ministerial organization and I serve as the Treasurer.
We have started six churches, the most recent we are now pastoring in Phoenix, AZ. We have lived in Florida, Tennessee, Georgia and Texas prior to our move to Arizona. Time goes by quickly!
We have three children of which two are boys and seven grandchildren which all reside in Arizona.

Ellis, Becky Daily (2001)
Retired elementary teacher; now does substitute teaching.
This article about her appeared in the Indianapolis Star:
Written by Jean Daily Mohler (sister-in-law): Dan, I have waited long enough for Becky to write this and now will do it for her! Becky married Bill Daily (class of '63) and has 5 wonderful children ages 13 - 29 and 2 terrific grandsons.
Two children have graduated from college, two are taking classes and one is in middle school.
Bill worked for the Indiana State Attorney General's office for 20 years and now has a practice in Danville - if you ever want a good, Christian attorney, I highly recommend him. They are both extremely active in their church.
Becky is also a 4-H leader, Sunday School teacher, VBS coordinator and has home-schooled their children. Needless to say, she has put her IU teaching degree to good use!I know that I am highly prejudiced but watching these two live their lives, raise their children and give to the community, I just wish there were more Becky & Bills in the world.
