Brief Bio:

After graduation, I worked with my father for a while on the family farm. I married in 1972. I just wasn't that happy being a farmer. I had learned to fly while in high school and loved it. I thought I could be a bush pilot or mission pilot but my eyes were not good enough for a commercial medical. I ended up going to aircraft maintenance school in 1975.

A lot has happened since then so far as my work life goes. I've managed to follow my dream and work hard at it. I founded Bogert Aviation in 1983, Bogert International Inc., Bogert Manufacturing Inc, SAFE JACK and Uncle Norm's Marine Products are other companies that I began and are operating today.

On a personal level, I married young to a girl I didn't really know all that well and it didn't turn out happy. Almost 23 years ago I met my wife Suzan. We would just hang out together and it was fun. After almost three years of that we married and it's been great ever since. It's still fun all the time. Between us we have three good kids, two son-in laws and 5 grandchildren. The family motto is: "Relax, Life is Good!" and it is.

Deb Bee, I saw that you have a birthday coming up. 39 again? How does that work? Must try it. Regardless, here we are. I see that you are living in Texas. I'll have to look up the city to see where. Hope your life is great and you are healthy, happy and well, if your healthy and happy not much else matters that much. Hope you have a wonderful 39 th birthday again and that you are treated very special on that day.
