Remembering my long time tennis buddy and wonderful man whom I had the pleasure to know. My mom told me that he passed away recently and I was unaware. However, I wanted him and others to know what a special and wonderful person Ron was. He was a TRUE kind heated loving man.

Coach, Christmas serial author Corcoran dies

I was born (sixty-six years ago) and raised in Bremerton, Washington and locally schooled through (of all things) a Bachelor of Science degree in electrical engineering from the University of Washington in 1965.

My career included two stints in California and one in Scotland, and culminated in my being a program manager for the Department of the Navy – the last twenty-six years of which were at (what became) the Trident Submarine Base at Bangor, Washington.

I’ve “extracurricularly dabbled” in the newspaper business for the last twenty-five years as a publisher, an editor, and a columnist – having a great deal of fun in the process. For the past four years, I have contributed serialized Children’s Christmas stories to The Kitsap SUN as a volunteer endeavor to re-institute a sixty year old Holiday season tradition at The SUN and “give back” to my community via a self-stylized attempt to increase the interest of local elementary-aged children in reading and, even better, creative writing.

My wife (and high school sweetheart) Judy and I live in Bremerton and are both retired and avid tennis players.
