Birthday- December 6
St. Michael's was always an important part of my
life.  Like a number of others in the class of 1952, I
was baptized in the parish (by Father Joe Murphy),
entered kindergarten and graduated from the high
school 13 years later.  I met my wife, Barbara
Moraghan, class of 1955, at a St. Michael's alumni
meeting.  We have two children, Susan and Tom.  
Our first grandchild, Madison, was born last
December and our second grandchild is expected in

After high school I graduated from St. Peter's
College and NYU Law School.  In 2005 I retired
from my law firm after 45 years of practice as a trial
attorney.  Last year Barbara and I became members
of the Jesuit sponsored Ignatian Volunteers.  As
part of that program, I work as an attorney at
Catholic Community Services in Newark one day a
week on immigration matters."
