FEATURED POET JUNE AND JULY 2011
I was born on September 10, 1927, in a farmhouse three miles southwest of Roanoke, Illinois.
My first eight years of schooling were at Schertz School, a small country school with all eight grades in one room. My four years of high school were in roanoke, where I graduated in 1945.
My work years started on the farm and ended with a career in the U.S. Post Office, after thirty years of service as a letter carrier.
