When he finished eighth grade, he says he thought he knew it all.
His first job was at the hosiery mill in Weissport. He worked five years in the steel mills, but most of his working years were in the hosiery mills until he retired.
He worked part-time for Rich Miller's funeral home in Union Hill until he was 85.
