Bio
I was born in Olean, NY back in December 1938. So, I guess you might consider me an old geezer, although I intend to live to be at least 105. Lived with my family, mom and dad, two brothers and a sister in Olean till I was 12. In 1951 we moved to Van Dyke (Warren), Michigan. In 1955, after my dad pasted away, we moved back to Allegany, NY. Moved back to Olean the following year and in 1959 I met my wife to be. We were married in April 1960. We moved around a bit in the Olean area till 1969 when we moved to the Dugan Rd. in Olean. In 1977 I decided it was time to head west, so a buddy of mine and my oldest daughter and I headed to El Paso, Tx. Early the next year we moved to Chandler, Az. We lived in a mobile home park till 1986 when we bought a house on Shannon St. We lived there till I retired from Graybar Electric in 2002. Sold the house about a week before Christmas and been RVing ever since. We really enjoy being free to go where we want, when we want.

More About Me
Have several things that I am trying to get into. One is making people aware of how to save gas and a ton of money. It is called, among other things, Run your car on water.
I also have accounts with people who teach how to get great grades in school, how to make money on the internet, and how to mentor folks in many different fields.
Work Experience:
I began my working career when I was 12 or 13. I would get up around 5:00AM and work as a milk delivery person for a guy by the name of Jim Davis. I worked for him while I lived in Michigan.I went
to school in the afternoon so it worked well.

In 1964 I went to work for Firch Baking Co. in Jamestown, NY. I would stay at the YMCA and drive home on Fridays after work. Finally, after about 6 months they had an opening in Olean
so I could be home with my wife and daughters.
In 1968 I went to work for Bob Ganoung of Olean Limousine Service. I loved the job, but was gone from home a great amount of time. I would average well over a hundred thousand miles every year
In 1975 I went to work at Dresser Industries in Olean. I worked in the blueprint department and hated it.
In 1977 I decided it was time to head west. My oldest daughter Cindy, then 16, a buddy, Dave Fish and I piled into my 1969 Dodge van with our 19 foot travel-trailer hooked on the back and drove to El Paso, Tx. After a trip back to Olean, Dave and I went back to El Paso. Dave went to work driving for Azar Nut Company. I got on at Roadway as a casual dock hand, loading and unloading trailers. Dave and I went and rented houses for our familys to come out. They all flew into El Paso about a week before Thanksgiving 1977.
I next went to work driving for Blaze Signs out of Medford, Oregon. The company built Sambo's Restruant Signs. I would deliver them all across the country.
