To start off, my parents bought the property on Day Street were I now reside with my wife Ruthie in the Spring of 1948. It was to this house that I came from my birth in a Springfield hospital. I was in the last first grade class in the original Granby Memorial School building and the first second grade class at Wells Road Elementary School the year of the '55 flood. I attended Granby Schools thru 8th grade when I left to attend Renbrook School. After marrying in '72, we bought a home on FernHollow Drive in '76 and remained there until moving back to Day Street in 2004. We raised two wonderful daughters both of whom graduated from GMHS with honors. Both are married, one couple living in the FernHollow house and the other missionaries currantly living in Aman, Jordan. While my wife is a fulltime volunteer at E.G.C.C. , I am retired from the electronics industry and spend my time playing at farming. Both of my parents were big time volunteers in Granby but I've never found my niche. One of my utmost beliefs is that one has a right to do with his property as he wishes as long as by doing so he does not impinge on the rights of others.
