Arguments are presented based on particle phenomenology and the requirements of unitarity for a postulated four generation CKM matrix (VCKM) based on a sequential fourth generation model (sometimes named SM4). A modified four generation QCD standard model Lagrangian is utilized for the SM4. The four generation neutrino mass mixing MNS matrix, VMNS, is estimated utilizing a bimaximal matrix, VBIMAX, and our postulated four generation matrix VCKM. Experimental implications of the model are discussed.
