Class Year: 1966
Residing In: Reno, NV USA
Spouse/Partner: Rhonda
Occupation: Attorney and PSIA Certified Alpine Ski Instructor
Children: Nathan, born 1974

Military Service: Active duty Army & Nevada Army National Guard.  

Graduated in 66 and entered the University of Nevada, Reno. Graduated in 70 and was also commissioned as a 2Lt, US Army. Law school in California from 70-73. Married in 72 and we have 2 children, who are also now attorneys. We have 4 grandchildren. Passed the bar exams in Nevada and California. Clerked for the NV Supreme Ct. 73-74. Active duty US Army 74-78 as a JAG. Returned to Reno, NV in 78 and entered private law practice. Partner in Stephens & Edwards, LLP, Reno. Still practicing law but on a reduced schedule. I try to spend more time on the ski hill teaching and skiing during the ski season than in the office. Joined the NV Army Nat. Guard in 1979 as a JAG. Retired as Colonel, NV State Judge Advocate, in 2003. Certified Alpine Ski Instructor on the weekends at Mt. Rose-Ski Tahoe. My wife is an retired elementary teacher. We traveled to Paris in 06 and were able to find PAHS, gym & football field, Bel Manior, Teen Club, and old apartment in Ville D'Avary. It was great fun. We returned to France in 2016 for a driving trip from Bordeaux to Mougins/Cannes, Provence and back to Paris via the TGV. We were in country for Bastille Day, my first since 1966. Each return to France and Paris rekindles so many wonderful memories of 64-66 at PAHS.

School Story:

The football, basketball, and track teams at PAHS from 64-66 were pretty good and I really enjoyed playing on those teams. I was able to see a lot of France, London, and Germany on those athletic away trips. The trips to play football in London in 65 and to run in the track championships in Nuremburg were especially great. Most of the students at PAHS seemed to come from the east coast or south but I came from Calif. I had two really close friends, Jack Wiseman and Leland Andrew, who also came from the same Jr. High and High School in Calif. I made contact with Leland in Minn. but completely lost contact with Jack after he left in the summer of 65. Does anyone know what happened to him? If so, I'd appreciate any information. I really enjoyed my Paris years, 64-66, and the school, students and faculty, were simply outstanding, academically, athletically, and socially. It just doesn't get any better than to be a Jr and Sr in high school and live in Paris.

I played football and ran track with Tommy from 1964-66. He played guard in football but also had the speed and determination to be a sprinter in track. We were members of the 1965 the Com-Z champion 800 meter team and finished 5th in the European championships that season. Tommy was simply a great person and friend and the kind of person upon whom you could always depend. He was solid. Rest in peace. Dick Edwards
