I graduated from the University of Louisville in 1967 and joined the U.S.  Army. Upon my honorable discharge in August, 1970, I started my banking career with the First National Bank of  Louisville. I retired as Head of  

International Dept of Cleveland based KeyBank in April 2000, only to accept a similar position as Head of International for Atlanta based SunTrust.

I greatly enjoyed my career which provided me the opportunity to promote International trade with emphasis on financing the export sales of US based clients. I traveled overseas and domestically quite often.

I retired for a second (and last!) time from SunTrust in April 2005  and chose to return then to Louisville which is my and my wife of 35 years’  hometown. Helen and I have two children, Marcie, 32, and Jeffrey, 27.

I have been very happily retired for 7 years and living the life back in Louisville!  We are blessed with good health and a great family. Helen and I are keeping busy with travels and volunteering. She with Gilda's Club and NCJW. Me with Jewish Federation and Delta Upsilon Alumni Association.  The Cards have kept us excited and entertained. Retiring and Moving back to Louisville was the right decision.  It's a very comfortable, friendly, and compassionate community.  I really look forward to our upcoming reunion and take this opportunity to extend my thanks to all those involved in planning and organizing our reunion.
