I was raised in Linden, New Jersey, attended Fairleigh Dickenson College, it was'nt a University at that time. Went into the Army, I served in the 71st Infantry Division Band in Alaska. It was'nt a state in 1955-56. Discharged in 1958, married in late 1958, had two children, divorced, moved to Florida in 1976 and spent many years in various areas of the food business including gourmet wine and cheese stores, pasta distribution, & natural food distribution throughout the southeast. Now, at 72 years of age and after open heart surgery 15 months ago,I'm looking to make the rest of my life a bit less strenuous. Now my wife and I are decorating picture frames and mirrors. They are,in a word, fantastic!
