With the New Year upon us, it’s time to start thinking about New Year’s Resolutions. One of Penn Theta Chapter’s 2016 resolutions is to stay connected with our fellow brothers and be more active. So, what have you been up to since you left Philadelphia? Have you caught up with any brothers recently? Attended any events? Gotten married? Had kids or grandkids? Moved? Retired? We, your brothers, want to know!

“At the age of 92 I don't have anything interesting to report. I continue to support the Chapter every year and watch the published contributors list to see how many of my Brothers from the mid-to-late 1940's are still around. I'm grateful that my mind is still reasonably sharp and that helps me deal with the age-related medical issues, primarily mobility problems.

I retired from A&P, the supermarket chain, in 1987 after 39 years. We had a passion for travel which took us to all 50 states, 3 Canadian trips, 12 trips to the UK and Europe, a Bermuda cruise and small ship Virgin Island, US coastal and river cruises. The inability to travel even more is one of the unfortunate results of our physical conditions.

I lost my wife of 54 years in an automobile accident in 2004, spent almost a month in intensive care in Portland, OR, was flown home to Morristown and eventually responded to physical therapy that left little of the original damage. I'm upbeat by nature, not a gloom-and-doom type, and that's a big plus. It keeps me from being upset by my physical limitations.

I remarried in 2005 to a lady who had been my wife's closest friend and had been a widow for several years. We'd known each other for over 20 years, were in the same social group, etc. Neither of us would have predicted that we would get together but we did. We're enjoying life together every day.

My main outside activity is with the Presbyterian Church in Morristown where I've been an Elder for more than 40 years and am still an at-large member of the Finance Committee. I am involved mostly in financial affairs such as capital fundraising and the annual stewardship campaigns.
