I was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1937.  My wife Liz and I have been married for 17 years.  We have five children and sixteen grandchildren.

I drove tractor trailers for thirty-six years and retired in December, 1999.

We have and enjoy our RV and like to travel.  My wife has a friend from high school who lives in SCC.  We came to visit her and liked what we saw in this area.

I started to play the guitar twenty-three years ago and the drums five years ago and I am still learning.  Iíve been with the Front Porch Pickers for five years and have a great time with all the pickers.

We gather each Wednesday in the Armstrong room in SCC.  My only regret is that we are snow birds and leave each year around the middle of May and return the beginning of October or earlier if possible.  After all, we have to spend some time with the kids and grandchildren
