Comments

Sid was intending to come to the reunion, but we have been informed that he had a heart attack and is in the hospital. As we get more information, we will keep you informed. He can use all the prayers and positive energy that we can send him.
*Prayers helped. My recovery has been great. Thanks to anyone who cared.

School Story

I hated school. Only things I liked were science classes, and shop. Can you tell? After Woodstock, where Alan Aurelli and Beth Lampman rode with me in my '61 chevy panel truck. John McCombs and a friend of his rode along too. They were from Michigan, where John had moved a year or so before. I ended up in the U.S.A.F., working on Phantom F4s. I was stationed at RAF Woodbridge, England. Had one TDY to Sardinia, the Mediterranean was unbelievably beautiful!
I spent a life sentence at Harrison Radiator/ Delphi as a production welder, retired in 2001.
I helped build safer motorcycle riders for 3 years as a 'rider coach' (formerly called an 'instructor' for MAC Streetrider, affiliated with NYS and MSF organizations, up on the corner of Niagara Falls Blvd. and Walmore RD. Imagine me, teaching?
Still welding stuff. Aluminum, stainless steel, most anything else, too.
I did the math once, I did over a million welds at HRD. Anyone need anything welded locally, call me 716-525-4900.

Happy birthday! France's? I must admit, I have wondered about 'Cadie' as a name. You must not have wanted to be called Franny or Fran....
