School Story:

Well- my memories of high school are a little "foggy" if you know what I mean. I use to love to play my guitar in the student park (as well as some other illegal things).A lot of people remember Mr. Gibson getting hit with the pie in the face, I was about 2 feet away from it. Marvin Lally had the pie in his hand and Gibby was saying forcefully "Marvin Don't do it !" "You'll be sorry" Of course Marvin didn't listen. I'm surprised he got his diploma. My friends Bob Florian, Andy Haas and I had a lot of great times together. We were always doing something. Amazing the energy we put into partying back then. My favorite teacher was Mrs. Joy. She had a way of getting the best out of me, without threatening or yelling to get her point across. I'd like to re-live those days again !

What are your plans for retirement? What is on your "Bucket List?

I am going to be retiring from the Post Office on December 1, 2014, with almost 32 years of service. As of now, I will pick up a few more gigs each month to help supplement the family income, and do some things I was never able to do when I was working. Thinking about downsizing home wise, and moving to a warmer climate when my wife retires.

What was your first job? What jobs have you held?

Dishwasher

Delivery Driver
U.S. Postal Service (Retired)

Comments:

I am very blessed to have such a wonderful life. I have worked at N. Royalton Post Office for the last 31+ years, and still see a lot of our classmates from time to time. I am married and live in Brunswick, I have a wonderful wife who has shown me the meaning of of unconditional love. I still am very active in the local music scene, although at times I feel like a man from another time - I rock out anyway!! Music has always been my passion, and sometimes I regret I didn't take it more seriously when I was younger. Looking back, I should have applied myself better in my schoolwork too. I was too cool back then to see or even care about the future, and did just enough to get by. Lucky for me I landed a good blue collar job that still remains fairly secure despite these woeful economic times. Be sure to check out my band's website and come on out and see us sometime. It would make my evening to see some of my old classmates.
