You could have knocked me over with a feather, when the phone rang and my wife said its a Warren Dickman and he knows you from F. K. Lane H. S..... Thanks Warren for remembering.  Any way, here's my bio...

Shortly after graduation, Warren Dickman asked me if I was interested in working for a Wall Street brokerage firm where he was employed.  I was and worked there for twelve years. In 1955, I married, had 4 children (2 boys 2 girls) left Brooklyn and moved to Huntington, L. I., N.Y.  In 1967, tired of commuting to the city, I accepted a position with the F. & M. Schaefer Brewing Company’s Distribution Center in Melville, L. I., N.Y.

My wife and I separated in 1970 and divorced in 1971. During this stressful time I met my true soul mate and moved back to Brooklyn to be nearer to her. On March 4, 1972 Faith and I married and next year we will celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. Not bad for the second time around.
     Prior to our wedding, I accepted a position with Schaefer at their main brewery on Kent Ave, in Brooklyn.  In 1976, Schaefer was one of the last Metropolitan New York breweries to close its' doors and moved their operation to Pennsylvania.
     At this point in our lives we decided that we should seek our fortunes elsewhere. We moved to Florida and we both accepted positions at the American Express Company’s Operations Center in Ft. Lauderdale. After 20 years service, we retired and moved to an active adult community in Boynton Beach, Florida where we are truly enjoying retirement.
