Denny still plays jazz (on saxes, clarinet, guitar, keyboard). His group, Planet Jazz, plays regularly at D’Agostino’s in Columbia, Summit Lake Winery in Holt’s Summit, Patty Malone’s restaurantlbar in Jeff City, and the Jazz Pub Crawl in Downtown Columbia. His other favorite pastime is Musky fishing. (He catches them and then lets them go.)
Lea graduated from UMC with a BS in ‘68 and a MA in ‘71. She just retired (June ‘03) from her job at Columbia United Church of Christ where she was Music Coordinator and Director of Orchestra, Bell Choirs, and Youth Singers. Denny and Lea have two children: Katie, 25 years old, graduated in 2000 from Grinnell College in Grinnell, Iowa and is a fourth year medical student. She is engaged to be married in May ‘04. Brian, 20 years old, is a sophomore at Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois and is majoring (this week anyway) in Environmental Studies and Music (Jazz). He is a jazz trumpet player and drummer, and he currently plays in two combos and one big band.
