I am a retired state worker and retired from the Pennsylvania Army National Guard. I served in the Army in Korea and Vietnam. On active duty, I was a telephone lineman. In the National Guard, I worked as a Military Pay Sergeant. I retired with the rank of Staff Sergeant (E6).

Since retiring as a state worker I have been active in local Democratic Party politics. I have worked with several local candidates for office. Currently, I am Corresponding Secretary.

My other main activity now is walking with my pit bull Roxanne (the Queen of Dogs). One of my doctors told me to, “get a dog and walk.” That was the best advice I ever received. Roxanne and I walk about six miles almost every day. The only time she does not want to walk is if it is raining.
