Myers , FL
graduating from Penfield High School I attended Alfred Technology
for a short period of time. Upon suspension from Alfred, I
started in an apprenticeship program at Rochester Products
Division of GM to become a Machine builder. I attended night
school for several years while in my apprenticeship and after
until I finally graduated from RIT. I became a Supervisor
in the Toolroom shortly after my completion of my apprenticeship.
During the next several years, I was promoted several times
and transferred a couple of times during my 37 ½ year
career at GM. I was involved with the opening of a couple
of new plants and the closing of one before I finishing up
as a Supervisor of Manufacturing Engineering.
I spent several years racing cars in the area and on east
coast drag strips. I even spent some time with motor cycles,
also. I was a member of the Rochester Street Rods for several
years and I have had several hot rods and custom cars over
the years. I have sold my last car, my 1956 Ford Crown Victoria
that was customized which I had it for 24 years. I used to
attend cruse nights and car shows, both local and some distances
away. I still go to several of them with my friends. It made
it into one of the car magazines a few years ago. I used to
put a lot of miles on it during the nice weather here in Rochester.
I have played a lot of golf over the years and continue to
play every week, usually averaging over 100 rounds a year
now that I am retired. I have been a member of Penfield Country
Club here in Penfield for 35 years. I also, belong to Colonial
Country Club in Fort Myers, Florida, where I now reside. I
spend about 7 to 8 months in Florida and most of the rest
of the time here in the Rochester area.
I was married for 34 years and have 3 grandkids. The oldest
is 21 and the youngest is 13. I am divorced and I am dating
a very close high school friend whom I dated some back then.
I stay involved with my hot rods buddies and the friends I
have at Penfield Country Club when I am back in the Rochester
area along with playing golf a few times a week. While in
Florida I play golf 4 to 5 times a week and pretty much enjoy
Best regards to all Penfield grads
