After graduation I attended the Draper Corporation Apprentice School but left in December to join the US Navy in January 1952. I spent part of my time with the United States European Command in Paris and later with the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon. After discharge in 1957 I earned a BS degree at Northeastern University and subsequently worked for several companies in Massachusetts. Five others and I formed our own company, Anacon, Inc. (for "analytical controls"), and I ended up as International Manager. Later I joined Foxboro, Inc., until retirement.
We have lived in Bellingham, Ashland, Framingham, Houston, and Atlanta, and we moved to Jacksonville after retirement. I was ordained as a deacon in the Catholic Church in June 1989 and have performed many services, including preaching, witnessing marriages, counseling, baptizing, and working with divorced Catholics wanting annulments. We recently moved to St Augustine where we are closer to our family. I am a facilities engineer for the church, working with the contractor and engineering firm to build a new church, the San Juan del Rio Catholic Church, in Jacksonville, in order to increase our capacity from 430 to 1400. It is keeping me busier than when I was a full-time engineer.
