Now that I'm retired, I'm cooking, gardening, bowling, bicycling, and traveling.

Busboy at Piper's III was my first job. Not at all cut out for restaurant work, I've been a city planner and architect since 1981, when I got out of college. I worked for Cleveland 10 yrs. and Cleveland Heights 29 yrs.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time/hobbies?

Getting back to playing tennis, though in slow motion.


Married an architecture classmate after school at KSU. Still like to bicycle, garden and bowl but got rid of my mullet.

Hi Al,
I'm writing to encourage you to join Kathy and me at the 40-year KSU architecture class reunion October 15-17. Carolyn Hunter is staying with us that weekend and we are planning on attending all three days of activities.
