My family is from Marin County, California
in the San Francisco Bay Area, where Bechtel Corporation is based.
Bechtel is a giant in the construction industry and my grandfather
Bill Waste played an important part in the company as Executive
Vice-President. Soon after my parents were married they began
their travels for Bechtel. Some Bechtel families probably have
to move even more than military families. Looking back now, it's
hard to believe that we did most all of this before I was 10
years old! Here's a brief account of what it was like for my
family from 1954 to 1964. The members of my family are: father
Jim Waste, mother Marilyn Waste, brothers Steve Waste and Jamie
Waste, and sisters Shawn Waste Hacker and Tenby Wright (Tenby
Waste). My family is all alive and well - later there will be
updates on everyone. Lastly, I'd like to say how proud I am to
have been associated with the Bechtel family and company - thanks
for these memories!
