Hatfield, John '60JOHN HATFIELD


I graduated from OSU in 1966 with a BSEE. Quinda and I moved to Greenville, Texas where I went to work as an RF design engineer.  We moved to the Fort Forth area in the early 70s where I worked in various engineering and Director of engineering capacities.  I moved into Information Technology Management with Motorola in Fort Worth in the mid 80s and retired to a semi-retirement consulting business of my own in 2001.  We had 2 kids along the way both of whom are grown and working in the Dallas Fort Worth area.

We are proud grandparents of 2 wonderful kids.  I still like to play golf and now that I’m fully retired, play as often as I can.  I like to read and have done some for-myself-only writing.  And of course photography is still a big part of my life.  Two years ago, we moved from our home of 32 years in North Richland Hills, TX to one closer to our grandkids.  Our new home is in Forney, TX.  The grandkids are in Rowlett a mostly bedroom community on the east side of Dallas and around easy driving minutes away.  Most recently, I’m working on an item on my bucket list.  I’m working on playing classical acoustic guitar.

These are shots I took as school photographer in our senior year some or all of which are in the annual – I can’t remember for sure.  I sent these to Lee Hoover when he produced the class of 1960 web page several years ago.  You could get copies of these by pointing to each one separately and right clicking your mouse and doing a save as or, depending on how you intend to display them, just provide this link although you probably should get Lee’s permission to do so first.
