Sue and I have been married for 42 fabulous years. After spending a few years in Tucson, Arizona we moved back to Susan’s hometown of Lebanon, Connecticut where we raised 2 wonderful boys, Byron and Andrew. We enjoy traveling, going to concerts, hiking, spending time with our sons and our new granddaughter, Shayna.

I worked at Manchester Community College for over 38 years and retired in 2015 as The Director of Media Services. I was also an adjunct professor teaching Broadcast Production at the college for over 20 years. Since retiring I enjoy visiting the gym and doing outdoor activities all year long. I am a 4th Degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do. I continue training and I am an assistant instructor. Susie earned her AA degree in Boston and went on be become a Certified Travel Agent. She worked for a few travel agencies before opening her own business in 2003. This enabled her to work from home and be able to be home to raise our 2 boys. She continues to work in the travel business and enjoys traveling, outdoor activities, gardening and of course spoiling her granddaughter.

Byron graduated from the University of Vermont. After working for a few non-profit organizations both in the US and Israel, he decided to go back to school to study to become a Rabbi. He married his wife, Davida in 2014. They have a beautiful 6-month-old daughter, Shayna. Byron and his family moved to Middlebury, Vermont to open Middlebury Chabad. He is also co-founder of a boy’s summer wilderness camp in Vermont, which he has been doing for over 10 years.

Our younger son Andrew, started college in Boston, continued at Manchester Community College and Ogeechee Technical College. He lives in Statesboro, Georgia where he is a butcher at a local meat market. He plays guitar and enjoys outdoor activities with family and friends.
