Graduated from High School 1950, studied electronics and radar systems until drafted into the army in 1952. Two years in Signal Corps as a Radar Tech. Got out and then got into sheetmetal Union Local 273 where I spent 40 years in construction work (heating, Air conditioning and Architectural Sheetmetal) While working, I spent 14 years (evenings) as an instructor in the sheetmetal apprenticeship program. Retired in 1994 and now spend a lot of time doing totally unimportant projects and traveling when possible. Next project is to drive to Alaska and back starting in May of this year.

40 year working for PepsiCo (Frito-Lay) and retired in 2011 as a Sr. Account Manager. The fun part of the job involved entertaining top corporate customers. I've been to Super Bowl's, Masters Golf Tournaments, World Series games, Final Four tournaments. NASCAR Races, BCS Championship games, Etc!

Geeze.... after writing all that down I'm wondering why I retired????

Started my working career in cross country trucking, soon learning the money was in selling trucks not owning them, spent the next 25 years selling/management/dealer for Peterbilt Trucks.
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WHOHOO, what a ride!"
