-Rob Trankley - 2009
Rob in obit photo about 2009


I did a "touch and go" at PGHS, transferring in during my senior year and moving again at the end of the school year. I have fond memories of my year at PG, and of the people I met while I was there.

I moved on to Miami, Florida where I graduated from the University of Miami and went on to graduate school. In 1979 I left the tropics and moved to Seattle, where I started a financial planning practice and helped run a couple of brokerage firms.

In January of 1995, tired of commuting several hours a day in Seattle traffic, "semi-retired" and moved to Richmond, Indiana where I have an office for the investment firm of Edward Jones.

I recently married my "pre PG" high school sweetheart, Donna Myers, whom I had to leave behind when my family moved to Pacific Grove in October of 1966.

I would enjoy hearing from any of you who still remember me!
