After a year of college at Fairleigh Dickinson University,
Lou worked for Bendix, with name changes finally became
Honeywell International. His position required him to work
on the Saturn Missile, F16, and F15 projects. He retired
after 43 years there.
The highlight of his life was taking his family on a
beautiful 6 week tour of the USA. He feels his achievements
include providing for his family, and watching his wife and
children receive degrees in their chosen fields.
Lou's unforgettable moments were the deaths of 2 of his
sons. Our hearts go out to you , Lou.

My work history includes 9 years at New Jersey Bell and
after time off for child rearing, I got a part time job with
a lumber company. That lasted another 10 years.
Now I help my daughter and son-in-law by taking care of
their girls during the week, as both parents have full time
jobs. I've been doing this since the girls were 6
weeks old and I've loved every minute of it. Now
that both girls are in school all day it's really easy; put
them on the bus and pick them up in the afternoon.
How have I changed since high school? Well, I'm not as
shy as I was back then. I'm more outgoing and
talkative and volunteer for things I would never have done
back in our school years. Also, if you recall, I was 5'9"
and weighed 98 pounds. That's changed too! HaHa
I've gained a few pounds and lost an inch due to back
My interests and hobbies are crocheting, reading and taking
care of our various and sundry pets; dogs, cats, bunnies and
fish aquarium. As for special achievements, I
won several blue ribbons at the Ocean County Fair for my
crocheting and one won Employee of the Month at the lumber
company I worked for. Other than those, I've done
nothing to be famous for .. just enjoy being a
Housewife, Mom and Grandma. Come to think of it,
that's enough of an achievement in itself.
My most embarrassing moment has to be on our honeymoon when
I accidentally locked myself in the bathroom. After an
hour of yanking and pulling at the door, my husband was
about to call the Manager of the motel. I wouldn't
hear of it as I was mortified enough, to say nothing of the
fact that I was also in my bridal negligee. Eventually
the door gave way and I was rescued by my husband. We
laugh about it now, but trust me, at the time it was
anything but funny.
