I reside in East Brunswick, NJ where I live with my wife Joanne, my seven ferrets and two cats. I recently lost my beautiful mother Rose on February 21, 2015. You can view all of my families Findagrave tribute pages in the internment section. If you can, please feel free to leave a note for them!

After a fifteen year career as a radio announcer, I decided to change careers and I am now a webdesigner and developer. I am also the proud owner of the largest independent baseball website on the world wide web called "The Deadball Era", the only website dedicated to deceased major league players located at I am also a Nationally Recognized baseball researcher and baseball necrologist and a member of The Society For American Baseball Research (SABR) I worked as a researcher for a TV project for ESPN on the 1919 World Series Scandle. My Baseball Site has been featured in the January 4th, 2002 issue of Sports Illustrated along with many periodicals Nation Wide.

I have authored a new book on major leaguers called 'The Cooperstown Chronicles: Baseball's Colorful Characters, Unusual Lives, and Strange Demises'. Along with Baseball Research and Necrology, my hobbies are baseball and hockey, collecting classic New York Islander hockey jerseys, raising tropical fish, and cruising on my Harley whenever I get the chance.

I have also made many friends through the findagrave family including my good buddies Joyce Ellsworth, Russ Dodge, Stew Thornley, Jim Tipton, A.J. Marik and Connie Nisinger.
