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.
My kitchen counter typically looks like this these days. Sue has really taken an interest in painting. She has quite a talent for it and I really enjoy her results. This picture is what her workbench looks like. The brushes and paints are complemented by a paper worksurface that might have any color in the rainbow.
