Left Hobart immediately after graduation for the Navy. I loved it enough to stay for 26 years. Lived in Charleston SC, Orlando FL, Ewa Beach HI, Bergen, Norway, East Lyme, CT, and Sardinia, Italy. After retirement, went to work for a financial corporation, but I was working harder than ever. Finished school, became a Field Training Officer (Federal Police Officer) for Homeland Security. After 12 years, I was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia, and moved to a desk job with Emergency Management. Took 4 years to get into remission, but thanks to Dana Farber Cancer Center in Boston and the Medical University of South Carolina, the outlook is good. My wife Gail has retired from the University of Connecticut Library. Our kids are spread everywhere (Massachusettes, Maryland, Virginia, South Carolina, Connecticut), so we do some traveling. Gail and I have just retired to Hilton Head, SC. I am easily the most blessed individual I know.
My best school memory is my time at school with my sister, Kathy. She was the funniest person, could get you laughing enough to make soda come out your nose. She and her friends had that ability to get into just enough trouble to make things interesting, and sometimes I'd be with her. The police knew Kathy by her first name, but never had to bring her home to our parents. Just pushing the envelope.
