After graduation I went on active duty with the United States Navy for 2 years. I was a Radar Seaman and served aboard a cruiser U.S.S. Northampton [which President Kennedy visited in 1962]. Later I was transferred to the U.S.S. Laffey DD724- The Laffey was the most decorated U.S Destroyer of WW2. Today she is berthed at the Museum at Patriot's Point, Charleston, S.C. And yes- I partied in the Navy just as I did at CHS!

Attended UB after the Navy- met a girl from N.J. we married in 1966. We had 2 sons Michael and Gregory. Gregory passed in 2k6 at age 36.
Currently, I have been helping out special needs children at various Jacksonville schools

Received a B.A. Bus.Ad from Bloomfield College, Bloomfield,N.J. 1970. Unfortunately, I didn't make it to Suma Cum Laude-LOL!

Business career: sales and management. UARCO Business Forms, Life Insurance and Telecommunications.All of those were solutions sales as an independent agent.

Divorced in 1995 and left N.J in 2k5 for Florida. They call this Paradise- I don't know why? LOL!

Present plans are to restart my T shirt business as a wholesaler.

Activities: golf and more golf, some fishing at the local fish market, volunteer for church activities.

Life is Good and Life is an Echo- what we send out is what we get back!

School Story:

Played freshman hoops, served as Treasurer of the BSL for 1 year and got the ball rolling to have Andy Robustelli, of NY Giants Football,speak at a BSL Assembly - worked at Thom McAn on Main Street, Bpt. and the Southend Super Market.

My fondest memories are all the "friends" I made at CHS- the parties, the dances, the Ring Dance at the Ritz and our Graduation at the UB Gym.

Going to Seaside Park to watch the submarine races and listen to Murray the "K"-did we really listen to Murray? Let's not forget the girls showing "Howe" standing! Conte's - Briarwood Farms- the Buglight-yep got in under age- the Seawall also. Jerry's and Jenny's pizza Thursday nights on the Drag- too bad I had to sell those Thom McAn shoes that night.

Bob, may your Day be Merry n Bright ??! Ma y happy returns on your special day.
We knew each other from our Southend days and playing baseball in the Original Little League in Bpt.
I stay in touch with Eddie Faulkner, Al Emond, Onald Moran n Joe Dwyer. You may remember 1 or all 4. Infact we known each other for a out 68 yrs ! If we visit our living areas we can meet for lunch. BTW, do you recall Kathy Triantifilopous? There's a family here in, Jax, that hv the same last name. Maybe they're related And of course they own a Greek restaurant and their Greek food is excellent.
