I have ebeen married to my wife for over 40 years, have 2 grown children, and 7 grandchildren. After retiring from over 50 years in the grocery retailing business, where I began as a bagger in a grocery store, moved into store management, became a grocery buyer, and finished my career as the president of a large food broker focused on retail solutions for my clients and a national grocery customer.
I wrote this book 30 years after the birth and death of one of my daughters. It chronicles all the challenges trying to navigate this journey.
I have contributed short works for several years through the Warren County, Ohio Writer's Workshop and have been a reporter for the Warren County Career Center and Senior Center.
