Yearbook

Yes! Attending Reunion
Spouse/Partner, children, grands and steps: daughter Lazette (deceased), grandskids Neesie and JayJay
Career History: After 16 years as a broadcast engineer, changed career to insurance and investments. The move turned out to be very successful and satisfying. A lot of engineers got down sized as they got older. This did not happen to me in the investment field.
City and State: Whittier, CA USA
Open Category for Whatever you want to tell about yourself:

Switching careers made it easier for me to relocate from Philly to sunny Southern California. I've been here since 1986. I semi retired in 2008 after my wife Alice died, and fully retired in 2014. I'm fortunate to be in good health and enjoying life playing tennis, traveling, and helping the grandkids.

Military? Alternative Service? Peace Corps? Protestor? Canada? If none of the above apply to you how did you relate to the war? Personally, through friends, family. Leave blank if you don't want to answer the question.

I was contemplating joining the U.S. Air Force because of my engineering. Six months before graduation in 1968, I was dating my first future wife. She worked for the draft board and told me that they were not drafting married men. Two weeks after graduation, we married. Thus, no military service and possible Vietnam.

Losses, illness, challenges? Spiritual/religious musings?

I look at life as a marathon, doing everything in moderation and hoping to reach that centenarian mark still in fairly good health.

Favorite memory from Swarthmore years:

The beauty of the campus.

Thanks again John for the tour of the NASA Goddard Space Center that you gave me, my grandkids, and their dad back in 2014. I'm sure it had a profound affect on them. My granddaughter, Nessie, graduated from Essex Community this past May 2017 and will soon go on to a 4 year college. The grandson, JayJay, is now a freshman at Penn State. He plays basketball and is studying business. Look forward to seeing you at the Reunion.
