About The Owner(s):
Dave Cochran (written 09/12/99)-
Though raised in Iowa, I have been a Hoosier now for over twenty years.
I've been happily married for several years to the former Cheryl
Hamrick from here in Terre Haute. Our kids are nearly all up
and out, with the youngest due to start college late next
As for an occupation, I've been in computer related jobs and
businesses since 1974 The jargon changes regarding our
industry (from ADP - automated data processing, through MIS -
management information systems, and now the preferred IT -
information technology), but for the most part I've been a plain
old business analyst and programmer. I've had the good
fortune to spend many years working for good companies with good
people, and also spend several years self employed. I've
enjoyed both types of careers. Overall, the
ADP/MIS/IT/whatever industry has been very kind to me.
This current project (TGSL.COM, Inc.) was partially inspired by the
process of sifting through the estate of my mother, to whom this
Webiography is dedicated. People's lives have always interested
me, and I've always thought it was a shame that our society's most
common form of posthumous memorial - the headstone - provides so
little insight into the person it honors. I still like the
dignity and solemnity of headstones. I would just like to help
create an additional, more personal type of memorial for our friends
and relatives (both living and past).
I have listed myself as the site owner for this Webiography simply
because I am the person most involved in its development and
maintenance. My older brother Bill, however, is a co-owner and
contributor to this site and for the future site for our
(info not yet available)-
As I haven't yet mentioned
this new section to Bill, it may be a few days (or weeks) before he
has a chance to ship me a brief biography. I'm sure he won't
mind if I fill in the
- Bill and his lovely wife Diane live in Billings, Montana.
- He has the good fortune to have me for a brother.
- Other than Diane and I, the rest is just details.
09/12/99 - This is the official v1.0 date for this site. It will continue to change
as time permits. Mother had many interests and kept MANY photos, journals, scrapbooks, letters,
and other memerobilia, so it will be some time before we run out of material. Bill and I intend
to create a site for our father as well, so we may let this one rest for a little while.
