After bouncing from Brebeuf to St. Francis, Buffalo, NY and back to Carmel, many of my friends from OLMC graduated from Carmel High School as well. What a great opportunity to be able to chat and even see again my dear old friends with whom I grew up.
Thanks to Janet Radloff for steering me to this website, these thoughts may become a reality. Since 1970 I worked for General Electric for a year before entering the Air Force where I served for a couple of years. I was assigned as a medic at Sheppard AFB in Wichita Falls, TX, where the first POW's returned from Viet Nam. I then moved to Ft. Wayne with Mom and Dad working in food sales for a couple of years.
I then bought a Mr. Softee ice cream truck and went into business. Hiring others to run the truck, I went to work as a bartender and then married. We moved to Crestwood Addition in Ft. Wayne and began raising our two (2) potential football players before I took another position in sales soliciting businesses with an alarm system developed by one of the NASA engineers. I was soon promoted to Manager and opened a company office in Joliet, Illinois where I continued for another couple of years.
Eventually, I took a sales/manager position with a home improvement company in Lansing, Illinois where I stayed for about eight (8) more years. Meanwhile, I had started a couple of other businesses in home improvement sales and was blessed with my two (2) other children, potential football players, but they were girls. Again, I entered the home improvement sales field with a company located in Chicago and stayed there for a few years before joining another sales company in Hammond, IN where I finally finished my career in sales.
Finding myself in Lebanon, IN as a result of a DUI on the way from Hammond to the Indianapolis 500, I ended up helping to found a halfway house, New Life Recovery Home for Men, which is still in operation today. Meanwhile, I worked over the next five (5) years for Pearson Eduation and Total Logistics in warehouse supervisory capacitiy. Eventually, my travels took me to Indianapolis, where I reside today. The only smart people in my family, my Dad, and two (2) sisters live in California and Arizona...eventually, I'll wise up too.
Today, I am a full-time student at IUPUI with a major in Social Work. I have another eighteen (18) months to go to earn my Master's degree when I plan to work for the Veterans Administration with homeless and recovering veterans.

School Story:

Can't remember too much from Carmel High School...it was kind of a blurr. I do remember a time at OLMC, though, where my brother Danny, got on the church microphone and announced that he was God which brough Nick, the janitor, to his knees asking what He wanted. My brother replied with the microphone turned all the way up, that He (God) wanted Nick to be a plumber. Nick, shaking uncontrollably vowed to change his vocation. The laughter finally got the best of Danny and he ran from the sacristy and out the door. Apparently, Nick recuperated, because he stayed on as the custodian.
