We grew up in the Old South End of Hartford and attended Naylor and Burr Jr High. Also, we worked at C & R garage on Franklin Ave for the Cordino brothers. He owned a classic green 1950 ford we used to cruise the Ave on Friday and Saturday nights. He was a good man. I last visited with him in 2015 at a 1960 Bulkeley Reunion. May he R.I.P.
