Comments:

Worked for US Air Force at Wright Patterson Air Force Base (Dayton, Ohio) as an Aerospace Engineer right after college at Newark College of Engineering (1968) until retirement in Jan 2001.

Pastoral Associate/Secretary at Queen of Apostles Catholic Community, a small parish of (approx) 210 families. Our website is www.qac-ohio.org.

I have been involved with the Annual Blessing of the Bikes in Dayton, Ohio since 2006 - one of the largest functions of its kind in the United States. I am the 'Blessor Coordinator' for the function, coordinating the efforts of a priest Presider and a deacon team for the event. The bikers are very respectful of the prayer service before the blessing and are very gracious to all the clergy who participate.

The 2015 Blessing of the Bikes (May 17, 2015) was (again) at an unofficial count of 10,000 motorcycles. The organizers are rapidly outgrowing the space at the University of Dayton and are now on the hunt for a larger space to accommodate all the bikes. What a GREAT day!!

Plan are to (eventually) move the event to Wright Patterson Air Force Base. I hope the organizers are successful - it would be many years before they could outgrow that space.

All monies raised go to helping children and military veterans. I am very proud to be a part of it.

Colleges Attended

Newark College of Engineering (1964-68) - BSME

What would we be surprised to know about you?

June 20, 1987 - ordained a deacon at the Cathedral of St Peter in Chains, Cincinnati, OH. Served at the Catholic parish at Wright Patterson Air Force Base from 1968-94. Started attending Queen of Apostles Catholic (QAC) Community in Dayton, OH in 1994 and accepted assignment as parish deacon in 1999. Also took on position as church secretary in 1999 and then appointed Pastoral Associate in 2006.

Never married, so no children. But my life has been very fulfilling in being there for others in my parish and surrounding communities.

Hi, Angela - sorry I missed your special day, yesterday. I have been especially busy this week, but the oversight was forgetfulness on my part. I hope your day was GREAT. I see you on Facebook often and you haven't changed much in all these years. God bless you today and always!

This photo was taken on one of my many (14 trips) to the New York World's Fair in 1964 with some of our classmates from OLGC.

What a great time we had!!

This was in my younger days a few years back (2005) when I didn't need any artificial padding to portray Jolly 'Old St Nick.'
