Retired sales acct. exec., for 30 years with one multi billion chemical co., professional musician both Greek and American. Had 7 piece Top 40’s band for 30 years and formed Greek band in 1982 to play Greek festivals. Have played over 100 with more coming when things settle down. Navy Band 4 years in the mid 60’s Two years in the Far East and 2 years in San Francisco. Selected to be in the Navy Honor Flag Detail at JFK’s funeral November 1963. Fifty of us were positioned inside the White House driveway and within 4 ft. in front of me passed all the world leaders, kings, queens and the Kennedy family with Caroline and John John holding on to Jackie. We have Two sons - a professor of Communications. The other son a successful businessman. My parents were both Greek as were my grandparents so I speak fluent Greek and learning to read and write again after so many years of not doing so. My friends say I’m kind, compassionate easy going, honest and trustworthy. My sons say, “dad, you’re the only person we know that meets someone new, and within 3-5 minutes know their whole life story !” In sales for 30+years it’s important to actively listen to other people and some of this I get from my mother and my beautiful precious wife. May their memory be forever eternal. I think about yiayia, pappou, mom, dad and my precious beautiful wife daily. Life is like a train and we never know when it’s our turn to get off. We’re just visitors on this planet.
