The "Captain" worked
his way through High School and College at Grand
Junction Pizza from 1979 to 1986. He did
everything: Cook, Washer, Driver, Night Manager,
Prep, Cash Register, cutting table, and Drinks.
His favorite thing to do was announcing over the
intercom when people's pizza was ready to pickup.
With his announcer voice, he would say "Number 23,
number 23, your pizza is ready". The patrons
loved it and told him he need to go into the radio
When the work was over the fun began. He would
always make a medium pizza and pour a pitcher of
beer to finish the night off before going home.
There was always a late night B movie after midnight
to watch until 2-3am.
"Doug" worked at GJ's too.
His special talent was
chugging a pitcher of beer in less than 15 seconds.
Captain was on the photography staff at JJ Pearce
High School and took pictures for the Annual and the
Pony Express Newspaper. His favorite car was
his 1978 Fiat Spider convertible which he used to
use as a prop to take pictures of JJ Pearce High
School cheerleaders. He loved that car so much
after he had sold it he still had dreams about it.
