Comments:

After spending 39 years representing workers in the Midwest I retired from the United Food & Commercial Workers Union. We now spend most of our time in Florida although Wisconsin summers bring us back to Kenosha.

Had a stroke last January thankfully my wife found me and I was able to receive the miracle drug TPA which cleared up my paralysis and left me with a small speech impediment which was corrected with therapy. After carotid surgery and 2 stents in the right coronary I have been told I am as good as old.

Made it another year change in lifestyle seems to be helping as last round of tests was all good!

School Story:

I too have many fine memories of the activities mentioned by others that we all enjoyed while at Bradford. Although some of my fondest memories are of hanging out at Schmalfeldts Cities Service station on 7th Ave and 75th St. We fine tuned our cars for runs on So. 7th and other places as well as the 1 block 58th St noon hours. Having not lost that spirit I still own a warmed over 401 AMC Javelin and am restoring a 48 Nash Ambassador coupe.

It was a wonderful era to grow up in and Kenosha was a great place to do it.

So sorry to hear of Peter's passing we grew up in the same neighborhood and were classmates from Southport elementary on.  He was a great guy quiet and reserved but always fun to be around.  RIP my friend.

So sad to lose a classmate especially one you admired Kathy was a go getter and involved in many community projects.  I knew her for many years and in  many different settings she was always pleasant with an infectious smile and willing to help in any way she could.  Condolences to her family, rest in peace dear friend.
