Then...       and       Now

Nyack Class of 55 pencil

School/College Highlights - I took some boring and unproductive courses at Fairly Ridiculous U. in Business Management that did nothing to enhance my career.

Marriage and Family Highlights - Jean and I were married in 1959 and divorced 20 years later. (My fault, not hers.) That union produced four wonderful girls - Karen, 40, Kathy 39, Kimmy, 37, and Kelly, 36. We had a thing about K's. They all live in the West Palm Beach area with my five grandchildren, Louis, 16, Tim, 15, Toni, 10, Luis, 8, and Bianca, 6. Two other attempts at marriage proved unsuccessful and I am now a happy, contented, bachelor.

Career Highlights - My career started with New York Tel and ended with AT&T when the Peter Principle and the breakup of the Bell System took effect. I moved through many career paths and found my niche in Labor Relations. When I retired, I was an Asst. Director, Labor Relations, in Basking Ridge, N.J.

Travel/Vacations - I have never left the contiguous U.S. except for an occasional deep-sea fishing trip. I did, however, have the occasion to visit almost all of our States on business - the best way.

Hobbies/Sports - Golf, web design, golf, deep-sea fishing and golf. I started my own web site devoted to 'newbies' and wound up doing design work for small businesses for a small amount of pay. Needless to say, my own site still remains under construction. However, if you would like to visit, I might surprise you and have some informative info and links  and

Civic/Church/Political Activities - I am presently 1st Vice Commander of Post 286, American Legion, Pine Castle, FL. I am also active in the Pine Castle Community Center doing volunteer work.

Achievements/Awards/Outstanding Events - Either too numerous to mention or too inconsequential to matter.

Anything at all that you may want to say - I was very surprised and excited when I received Bob's e-mail. I'm sorry to say that I will not be able to attend the reunion due to other commitments but I wish all that do to enjoy the wonderful experience of sharing memories of our times at N.H.S. Since I live in the land of the Mouse, feel free to contact me if you're planning a visit. And I'll be glad to help to make your stay more pleasant. I can let you know which golf courses have the most gators on the water holes.
