Comments:

Retired from research position at University of Buffalo. Previously worked in precious metallurgy. Stay in good health and have been married for 45 years (a record for a musician). Music is my love, but always had a decent day job. Drive a 1950 Studebaker in the Summer and generally enjoy little of the high-tech. world. Retired from full-time work in 2012 in psychological research at the University of Buffalo. Currently work three mornings a week at a small library and continue to play classic (1920s-1940s) jazz in Eastern US. and Canada. Still married for 49 years. In 1984 we adopted a three month old baby from South Korea who is now all grown up and has a very successful life. She presented us with a grand-dog seven years ago.

School Story:

A happy Kenmoron. Have been playing various forms of jazz for 50 years on multiple saxophones and clarinets (one at a time!). Attended U.B. from 1966 to 1973. Favorite school....Hoover! The teachers at Ken West were the best and were better at giving knowledge then any others I ever had in college. My hat is off to them all, Especially Miss Scott (English). I was a music nerd and didn't have a lot of friends, as I lived on Grand Island. I am saddened that almost all my friends have passed on, however I have wonderful memories of playing with Tom Grenier and Tom Englert (who graduated in the Summer). Both my buddies are gone and I often think of them and K-West when I play a concert. I also played with Bob Ortolano and a few others in the rock band, the "Madmen". Credit also to John Stone, a musical genius, who played the greatest rock guitar and still lives in Kenmore. Time flies-best wishes to all.
