Our Children & Grandchildren
Comments:

Most of you already know, my family moved to Bath during my junior year at Highland and I went to Revere High for my senior year. I was not too happy about leaving but since I wanted to participate in sports, it was necessary that I go to Revere. I'm glad I did because I met many new friends and became an active member of things taking place at Revere. After graduation I moved on to college and Akron U. I started dating my wife in my junior year and we were married in April 1966. I went to work for Campbells Soup Company in their sales division and worked there for three years. We started to build our home here in Bath in 1967 and moved in in 1968. I love it here and our property was part of my wife's family farm. Sue had lived here all her life. I became a fireman and paramedic in Bath and remained in that capacity for 25 years. After working for Campbells I moved to pharmeceutical sales. I worked for Boehringer Ingelheim Ltd. until I retired. I then returned after only six months of retirement and became a consultant for for three different companies.

Enough of this crap, I'm retired and enjoy working outside. I can't do much of anything but ride the John Deere around and mow. I'm pretty incapacitated and use a walker and scooter. My knees are both gone but since I have had a major bout of cellulitis no doctor wants to touch me. I'm also so fat that the doctors don't want me to risk all the problems that might develop. We love to travel and spend quite a lot of time in the Carolinas visiting our children and both of my brothers live there as well. We are going to Florida to get away form the cold and look forward to spring.

School Story:

Nothing really special but most of my memories are very pleasant. Of course I remember that Highland had no football field and we played all games away. I know this was unusual and my parents did not like picking me up at 11:00 or 12:00 PM Just think, that what was a new school to us, has already been replaced. Oh, well, I guess I'm living in the past and I want to stay in the present and do as much as I can.
