Bio

After the war ended, I was transferred to Biarritz where I played in a band until my discharge in June of 1946. Returning to my home in Key West, FL, I was married in Nov of that year and had 2 sons. I worked as a draftsman for the US Navy until 1966 then relocated in St. Petersburg, FL where I worked for Babcosk & Wilcox until I retired in 1986, then worked for General Dynamics for another 5 years. I am still an active musician playing w/various bands in the area.
