Comments:

After graduation I worked at Sichol's & Sons across from Old Christ Church making Beds & outdoor furniture. Then I completed a six year apprenticeship in printing & worked as linotype operator & a make-up man at Philadelphia Inquirer, worked at the Liberty Bell Racetrack printing shop & various magazine publishers. Went on to Home Remodeling Contractor for 15 years until the recession of 1980 created my demise of the business. I was lucky to acquire a job at the Philadelphia Shipyard till it closed. After a few frustrating months I was accepted as a carpenter with the city of Philadelphia where I worked until I fell off scaffolding & literally tore off my right foot. I have been retired since. All in all I think I led an interesting life. Married Dorothy Gardopee a former Mastbaum student in April 1959. She would have graduated in the June 1958 class. She worked at K-Mart & Home Depot. My wife Dorothy passed away quietly on February 8, 2017 after two years of illness. I met Dot when I just turned 17 & she was almost 16. Married on April 25th of 1959. Altogether we have been together almost 60 years. She has definitely left a hole in my life. In April of 2019 I had a second chance of happiness with a wonderful woman (Carol Clark) to share my life with.

Did you attend a College or University?

No College
In 1958 went to Robbins Voc. Tech. for 6 months of lessons for printing & a 6 year apprenticeship at Periodical Press.

Hi Dee, don't know if you remember me but, I would see you on the roof once in a while & also around Allegheny ave & Rorer st. where we got those giant ice cream cones. A lot of water under the bridge since then. Wishing you a great birthday, enjoy.

I knew Mona for some time. She was always a unique person. Didn't know until recently she had been married to another classmate whom both Paul Kelly & I were good friends with. Regret not being able to find him all these years, Mona had a good man by her side, which is not surprising. She was gifted with a great personality. She will be missed by all who knew her.

I wasn't close with Pat but had crossed paths often through the years. I found her to be very friendly & cheerful, attractive & always dressed nicely. My heartfelt condolences go out to her family.
