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.
I was back to practice with the Brothers in Song yesterday. I hadn't sung anything in about two weeks. All of my higher ranges were gone and the lower ones weren't the best either. You have to start someplace so I did. Everyone else was in some sort of shut down or the other so we made a fine group.
I had new music to work on.
