Germantown High School * Philadelphia, PA. * Class of 1957
Life After GHS>
---After graduation, knowing I didn’t want to go to college, I went to my local Unemployment Office to see what kind of job was available. They sent me to The Philadelphia Inquirer. After working at a menial job for a while, I started a printer’s apprenticeship. 6 years later, I was a full-fledged printer. 20 years later, I became involved with The Inquirer’s first typesetting computer. I joined the Inquirer’s Systems Department and took care of the typesetting computer system. In all, I spent 43 years working for The Inquirer and Philadelphia Daily News (Knight-Ridder).
---Along the way, I married and had two wonderful children. My daughter, Terri lives in Hatboro, PA with her husband, Joe and my only grandchild, Joey. My son, Harold, Jr., lives in Elizabethtown, PA. I am divorced and living with my best friend, Carla in Montgomery County, PA. ---About 5 years ago, I realized a long-time dream and bought a 1975 Corvette convertible. Since retiring in Jan., 2001, I have been enjoying life with the top down, fishing, playing golf and spending lots of time in the Poconos.
