I was born in Saint Charles at Saint Joseph Hospital on Nov. 30, 1948. My father and His 3 brothers fought in WW11. My Father earned 4 Bronze Stars in the Philippines that I new nothing about until his Death ( he did not talk about the War at all) I was raised on the North End of town on North 5th Street. I went to Saint Charles High School. I was drafted into the Army ( draft #172) in 1969 and married in 1969 to My High school sweetheart and still in Love with Her. We had a baby Girl in 1972. I worked in a Aluminum Foundry in Missouri for 37 years. I became a Production Manager at that Foundry the last 19 years. I retired in 2009 at the age of 60.
