Comments:

I had a 34.5 year with ComEd/Exelon corp, retiring in July of 2002. I started in the Operational Analysis Dept. in Maywood repairing electronic equipment used in the Generating stations and Distribution systems. From Maywood I moved to Joliet Generating Station (7-8 side) to be the Process Computer maintenance tech. After my stint at the Station 9 I moved to Computer Systems where I did some microprocessor design work for a special project that was used at Dresden and Quad Cities as part of a Process Computer upgrade. When that project was finished I moved to Dresden as part of the Computer Group. My initial duties there were Systems Administrator for the Wang Word Processing computer system and the Plant Paging system. I then acquired responsibility for the Plant 2-way radio system and eventually the telephone system. From those responsibilities I was promoted to Department Head of the Computer Group now known as NIS(Nuclear Information Systems). My next position was with the Corporate Telephone Group where I had oversight responsibility for all the cell phones and pagers used by Exelon. (that was a #$%@#$#$ of a job). My final responsibility was Contract Administrator for the Maintenance Contract that Exelon negotiated with the Telephone Company. I retired from that position.

I am currently enjoying retirement with my lovely wife (Chris) of 32 years. I have several hobbies (Chris tells me "NO NEW HOBBIES) that keep me busy. I enjoy Landscape Photography, model building, and I am currently learning all I can about CNC machines.
