25th Reunion

After the United States entered World War II, I left Amherst and served with the American Field Service as an ambulance driver in North Africa. Our outfit was attached at the time to the British Eighth Army led by General Bernard Montgomery.

Back home I eventually became associated with the trade union movement for which I worked until my retirement in 1987. My union responsibilities covered contract negotiations, organizing, arbitrations, public relations and voter education.

Forty years ago, I married my wife, Mickey. From this union, I have three marvelous daughters and subsequent grandchildren. When not trying to read the walls off the local library, I pursue other hobbies such as photography, music and gardening.
