Married twice spent 9 years working and living in Pittsburgh Pa during 75-84. Years. Went to work for Harnischfeger P&H right out of high school . Rose thru the ranks there, running three divisions . Survived the sell off , and ultimate acquisition by Konecranes and retired as Vice President of standard cranes. I’m now a snow bird living 7 months in North Fort Myers Florida and 5 months in Waterford Wi.LIVING Life in Florida is BEAUTIFUL. Have been in several bands that played around Milwaukee. Starting with the Country Rascals where I met my wife Pam. (85-88)We have also been in the Fabulous Invictas(88-91) and Heart2Heart(91-present). We still play out very regularly here in Florida and an occasional gig in Wisconsin. Do some crane consulting on the side for my former employer.

School Story

Wish I would have circulated more in high school. I was afraid to approach girls. Worked 49 hours a week at Dutchland Dairy while going to Pulaski. My senior year I finally had a girlfriend I met through Dutchland Dairy but she went to Bay View. So I didn’t attend any Pulaski events or dances etc.
But it all still worked out well. I have had a successful life. And still am living the music dream here in Florida.

??? Go on a cruise. Meet some of the people from Pulaski that I should have spent more time with back in 1967-9

When was the last time you belly laughed?

What animal would you be if you could choose one?

Have you ever been kissed under a mistletoe? And by whom?

Did you ever make a prank phone call back in high school?

Yes I have called girls I liked and was too scared to talk and hung up. Creepy hey

Biggest thing that you would do differently if you were back at PHS?
