Hello. My name is, of course, Michael P. Smuda. I was born in 1947 in Camden, New Jersey. Being part of a military family, I didn't stay there long. In fact, throughout my youth, we didn't stay anywhere long. I am a Senior Software Analsyt (systems programmer) for the Alameda County Information Technology Department in Oakland, California, and have worked for the county since 1973. This now requires a 1 hour and 45 minute ride on AMTRAK's Capitol Corridor train from my home in Woodland, California. I have an AA in Liberal Arts from Chabot College and a BS in Mathematics, Magna Cum Laude, from California State University, Hayward which has now changed its name to California State University, East Bay.
My family consists of my wife, Diane (nee Rita Diane Jacobs), and four children, Kathleen (Katie, 1975), Jennifer (Jen, 1978), Scott (1982) and Dana (1984). Diane and I celebrated our 30th anniversary in 2003. Katie is married to Cameron Fuller. They are the parents of Collin, my first grandchild (born 4 May 1998). The Fullers recently moved from Concord, California, to Woodland. The rest of the family lives in or near Woodland, California in Yolo County. Jennifer is now married to Steve Cotter (18 September 2005) and they are living in Woodland. Dana is married to Matt Schulte (17 May 2008) and they are currently living in Davis, California.
My father was A. C. Smuda, a psychiatrist. My mother was Jane Francis (Reed, nee Julia Veronica Brandon), a nurse and teacher. One sister is Patricia Schaefer of Peoria, Arizona. Also in Arizona is my sister Theresa (Terri), a teacher in Tempe. My brother David is deceased with his family mostly living in eastern USA, his wife Carol, recently died in Maryland. His daughter Deborah Williams with her husband Tom and daughters Emily, Natalie and Maddie live in Pennsylvania. David and Carol's son David II is now living in North Carolina with his wife Sue and their four children. My brother Alan and his wife Joyce are also living in Woodland, California.
