Now the hard one. Tell us what we need to know…51 years in the space below:

Although it has been sold a few times and changed its name many times, I have worked for the same company for 45 years… started in 1969 as a Technician and now I am Chief Engineer.  Married for 32 years.  I believe in long relationships.

My times at HHS are very fond memories.  It’s sad that I’m not in touch with many of my old friends.  I had a brief reunion with Vince Braun and his wonderful wife when I moved to Shirley.  He lived nearby.  Then the company moved to Florida and I couldn’t turn down the opportunity (no State tax J).

Finally, if you had to do it all over again, I would… have married Nancy Human.
