50 Year Reunion Questionnaire Response:

Married to Maureen for 37-1/2 years. We had four sons, Tim/ Brian/ Brendan and the late Patrick. We have four grandsons, Liam, Owen, Connor and Quinn; and one grandaughter, Camryn. There are two more grandchildren due in the fall.

Retired from the Chicago Board of Education after 34-1/2 years. I keep busy with the grandchildren and coaching baseball at Brother Rice.

I am sorry I can’t be there, but we have a family vacation out-of-state and will be leaving the 24th.

Enjoy, have a great time. I hope we can keep in touch. You have my e-mail below.
