Retired Xerox executive
I joined WRUC in 1962 at the beginning of freshman year. My earliest memories were of holding the bottom of a ladder while Sweed dropped pieces of wire and electrical parts on my head. I worked on ladders running wire, selling ads and producing commercials. I filled in for several of the time slots, conducting on-air interviews. I served as general manager in 1965-66.
After graduation, I went to Navy OCS in Newport and joined the Navy Civil Engineering Corps. I was in Vietnam in 1967-68 when I got to see Bob Hope perform Christmas Day 1967, just prior to getting caught in the middle of the Tet Offensive.
I joined Xerox right after the Navy. After 14 years in sales and sales management, I joined two friends and started our own office equipment and services company. I spent 20 years living in Annapolis. I retired in 2014 and we moved onto our sailboat, traveling between New England and Bahamas. We just retired from the sailing life and now divide our time between Candlewood Lake in Danbury, Conn. and Vero Beach, Fla.
