After 33 years of correcting statements written by the youth of Oak Lawn such as "I was at a lake in Indiana near Wisconsin," and marrying off my oldest son, Jason, while still housing my post-college sons, Mat and Jon, I've retired.  Although working in the garden, baby-sitting for my grandson, Zach and completing myriad household chores can be riveting, I have spent much time pursuing other interests such as playing basketball, golfing and traveling.  Because my wife has not yet retired, I felt compelled to take a job for the winter months.  I am the assistant freshman girls basketball coach at Oak Lawn High, a truly fun, rewarding pursuit.  I'm looking forward to whatever is next in life.
