I was born in Long Beach, California to Marjorie Crane and Fred L. Welsh during the last days of WWII. I grew up in the Vassar/Millington, Michigan area where I did a lot of farming in my youth. Then, it was on to Michigan State for a BA in history/pre-law. After graduation, I became an officer in the US navy serving on LST1160 Traverse County and DD931 Forrest Sherman as main propulsion assistant and CIC officer. After leaving the Navy in 1972, I managed a Manpower Inc. office in Flint, Michigan. Then it was on to General Motors for twenty-seven years as an Industrial Engineer. Now, I'm happily retired and very busy with a singing group, Brothers in Song, and with volunteer work at the Bay County Historical Museum.
Tomorrow, the material will be here for the garage. I'll have to take a picture. The trusses I have visualized for the last three months will be in the yard. This 6" x 24" by 32' beam that will be lifted to the ridge of this building will be here too. It's exciting and a wee bit scary. I'm glad Eric Hauger will be here to help. I need to take a picture of how this all looks one week from today.
