Lived most of my life in Mariners Harbor. Graduated from PS-44. Alfred Quinn was my eighth grade teacher and a dam good one at that.

Attended McKee H.S.

Married a Staten Island born still young rose-bud from stapleton --- Mary Shake. She lived on Van Duzer St.

Lived in Dungan Hills until I moved here to Maryland in 1975.

Resided at Mt. Loretto for about 2 maybe three years in early 50's.

Took music lessons at the Staten Music Center on Amboy Road in Great Kills then later in Concord.

Played in a band called the (what else of course??) PLAYBOYS.

Did a number of gigs in Port Richmond, Mariners Harbor, Great Kills, Stapleton and other areas of the Island.

Also taught piano, accordian and organ in the middle sixties till I moved here in 75.
