SUMMARIZE YOUR CAREER/PERSONAL PATH OVER THE LAST FIFTY YEARS.
Even though I
visit CT at least twice a year, I have spent 40 of the last 50 years in Houston,
Texas. I started out at the University of Miami and after 2 yrs transferred
to the University of Houston where I received bachelor's in business administration.
After school I joined the Navy Reserve and spent 14 months in Da Nang Vietnam. Then I worked in Hartford for the State of Connecticut Judicial Department for 7 years .
In 1976 I bought 50% of a family business in Houston. We sell wholesale bar supplies. Everything you would find in a bar except the alcohol. A lot of work and a lot of hours but quite fulfilling.
Semi retired for the last 5 yrs working about 20-25 hrs per week.
In addition, I've been involved with real estate and may do more with it as I do less with the bar supply business.
I've been married
twice. My first wife provided me with a wonderful daughter and my current wife
of 23 years provides with a good life.

WHAT ARE YOUR SPECIAL
OR MOST OUTSTANDING MEMORIES FROM OUR YEARS AT NBHS?
Being a member of the Earls Club benefited me in many ways. Often, I have found, it is just as important to be street smart as book smart. A few years ago I came across the bi-laws of the Earls Club and was very impressed with the insight we had as kids.
