I retired after 40 years of service in the IT Department for a large manufacturing
company. I managed a group of programmers supporting in-house manufacturing
systems, led an IT group with acquisitions, and worked with users at many locations.
After I retired, I volunteered for three organizations: Playhouse Square as a Red Coat
volunteer, Animal Protective League in Elyria – where I exercised dogs and worked at
their adoption and fundraising events, and Community Care Center – where I helped the
seniors in my hometown and helped with food collection and distribution.

After moving to Florida, I currently volunteer at Community Co-operative, where I help
prepare the meals for Meals on Wheels program or assist in delivering the meals to
seniors, and Tiny Showers Charity, where I am an active volunteer where I canvas for
donations for fundraising events, help deliver items to infants in need, and do other
miscellaneous tasks as needed.
