Comments

Mimi and I have been married for over 45 years. She is beautiful on the outside and the inside and I am the luckiest guy in the world. (Not bad for a guy who could barely get a date in high school) After graduating college and grad school, I started my work life as a teacher and wrestling coach at Central High School in Providence, RI. Several years later I was invited to join our family business, Steel Warehouse, and I have been there ever since.
I have no plans to retire because I am enjoying every day of "work" life

Mimi and I have been involved in community projects and have been blessed with a wonderful and caring family

School Story

I was extremely fortunate to have some great teachers and coaches. Mr. Goodman, Mr. Simpson, Mr. Bilby, Mrs. Bohan, Miss Steele were among those who come to mind immediately.
Mr. Simpson was my baseball coach and Mr./Coach Wally Gartee was my wrestling coach and one of the most inspiring people I have ever known.
Coach Gartee was demanding and fair. He was far more than just a coach.
The debate team was loaded with characters--one of which was our coach and "supreme leader" Mr. Charles Goodman.
There are too many wonderful memories to report in this space but I will be happy to share them with anyone at the reunion

I didn't know Van real well but we did play and compete on some of the Riley sports teams.  The last time I saw Van was at one of our earlier reunions.  When I told him about some of our young grandchildren, he was kind enough to invite me to bring them out to his farm.  That was very thoughtful of Van.  Rest in Peace, Van.
