Yes! Attending Reunion

I left Lansing the following morning on a train to Texas to join the USAF. After about 5 months in Texas I was reassigned to Westover AFB in Chicopee MA. I did have an short leave in June and saw a few of you guys when I was home. I spend about 2 and a half years at Westover and then was reassigned to Tule Greenland for an one year tour.

After returning from Greenland I married my Love Carol (we met at a dance at Westover and have been dancing ever since. Married October 19, 1963 (53 years this October).

I have spent most of my career in the automobile industry. Parts manager and Service Manager. We lived in Keene NH for about 5 years and Island Pond Vt for another 5yrs. Moved back to Chicopee MA in 2000 to be with our sons and grandchildren.

We have been very active in our church, Choir, Deacon, Treasurer but the position we love the most is greeters, love meeting new folks and helping them. I also served in the children's ministry for 6 years.

Our trip with the choir to Miami Beach was one of best memories I have. We had two buses for our trip and some where in the smoky mountains we had an flat tire. So one bus empty into the other till we could get to some where save and let the other bus catch up, MAC had us sing the Battle Hymn of the Republic I still get thrills just thinking about that.

Hello Pat, Wow a lot of water has past over the dam since we lived next door to each other on Alpha St.
I see by your profile that you have become an world traveler , I also notice that you have gone through a lot of trials. 1 John 7 thru 13 teaches us how very much God loves us and with his love we can share with one another how faithful HE is.
This photo shows my family in Sept of 2015. On my right is our younger son Keith with his wife Marsha and son Tyler all three play in our praise band at church. Tyler plays drums, Keith plays guitar, Marsha plays Keyboard. Three generations serving the Lord. To my left is our son John, wife Diane and their children Brandon, Kristyn and Kayla.
I left Lansing the day after graduation to join the USAF. My first base I was sent to was Westover Air Force Base in Chicopee Ma. I met Carol at a dance there in 1961, following a years tour in Tule Greenland I was discharged an we married in OCT 1963.
In 2007 I was blessed to go to China with 16 others on an mission trip. This trip was very eye opening as we were able to get into several small village and spent two weeks there. We were invited to an High School in Mile, This school served 3,000 children and they all spoke english. We were each assigned to teach an one hour class. What and awesome experience this was.
I spent most of my life working in Auto dealerships, Service and parts manger. I went into semi- retirement in 2006. I then drove school bus for 8 years before i retired.
I have been very active in our church for over 30 years and love being able to serve others.
